By now we’ve all heard of the photo of the New York Post photo of the man pushed on the tracks. The photo sparked controversy and sparked a national debate about the role of photographers.
We at SLR Lounge are huge supporters of NPR (National Public Radio) and we wanted to direct our readers over to this week’s Talk of the Nation with Ari Shapiro. The episode, entitled Documenting Tragedy: The Ethics Of Photojournalism debates the Ethics of Photojournalism and it’s a great, unbiased debate that brings in actual experts, shows both sides of the story, and takes calls from actual photojournalists.
