I had no pretence of objectivity

- - Blog News

I was photographing, giving my opinion, and I wanted you to know that I was giving my opinion.The term “photojournalist” tends to be loaded with meaning: specifically that one reports the news. I don’t see that as my function. Even when I was photographing things that were news topics, like conflicts, my function was not that of a news reporter, my function was to comment on what I saw happen that day and to offer a subjective point of view. In my role I was commenting on what was happening, but also trying to communicate what it felt like to be there when it was happening.
