James Nachtwey hit in Thailand

The 65 year old James Nachtwey still goes to the most dangerous places on Earth. At the moment he is pressing his luck in Thailand. This weekend he has been shot by a bullet. The war photographer who has been the subject of the documentary bearing the same title is okay now however and he continued work after his wounds have been taken care of.

Not all photo edits are unethical

Photo editors at Hungarian news website Origo found a photo that seems to be retouched before publication on the website of one of the radio channels operated by BBC. A portrait of one of the musicians has been cropped out from a group shot and some details in the background have been cloned out. BBC claims it is not a faking of the photo because the photo is not used as a news image.

No more need for photographers – or journalists

I disagree with the statement in the title but the recurring photographer layoffs and many comments suggest this. This time a journalist expressed his quite similar opinion. I think he just challenged his fate because it is a dangerous thing to start prove your boss that everyone can be replaced with cheaper workforce – they might believe you and take it serious.
