The limitations of photojournalism
Sometimes, photos are only an interception of affair or an event. The truest picture that we can see is only a reproduce of the scene, even that photo is without any edition. In reality, the meaning of scene is changing with shooting angle, scope, time even lens. Sometimes the subjective awareness of photographer is playing a decisive role of outcome. Although these photos can be file or documents, but it contains potentially dangerous.
Now with the transport facilities, more and more excellent themes are easier to discovery. However, some photographers are shooting with a sort of curious mind, they only focus on problems but ignore why these problems arise?
If you using your own subjective minds to taking photos that might bring some negative impact.
A big part in photojournalism and documentary photography is attention to vulnerable groups in society. Photographers expect more people can understand them and pay attention on them by shooting photos. Thereby they can away from vulnerable. But now some people are bringing a strange peeping mental. They subjective assume these people are miserable. Therefore, they showing their worst part, which they might not want to showed to public. I feel sometimes I might make these mistakes. We might need to think in others' angle and consider feeling of objects.
