Does photojournalism make a difference

Hi All,

I was chatting the other day with another photographer who wants to become a international PJ dealing with the crappy side of life.

We got onto the subject of “does photography actually make a difference” I can only think of one or two times when photography has made Governments actually sit-up and make a change.

I was thinking of Philip Jones-Griffiths book Vietnam Inc, which didn’t make the US state do something different but affected people in the street. Which turned public opinion against the war.

But what really surprised me was when they said they’d died to get the picture (even without getting a name for themselves). Which I think is the wrong way to think of photojournalism. No story, no matter how big it is, is worth dying for?

Have I missed something in the way young Photojournalists are viewing the job nowadays.

I don’t believe that photography does affect public opinion that much as I think we’ve all become use to seeing them and have become desensitised to them.
