  • Meaning and myth through the photographer’s lens | Jina Moore
    piety Turns out to have been a commission from the Joint Distribution Committee which asked for exactly that level of poverty to help fundraise As Benton puts it The picture of the world I had recreated in my mind the world my whole family came from was actually from a commission to document only the poor and the Orthodox The article continues The most extensive falsification however is in the captions the bulk of which Vishniac wrote after the war Many include incredibly vivid details too vivid as well as dramatic narratives that either could not have happened or could not have happened the way Vishniac presented them Even the selection of what Vishniac chose to publish now seems broadly like a distortion It s as if we took pictures of homeless people in New York and then the city fell into the sea and 50 years from now people looked at those photos and thought That s what New York was Benton says Portraiture has power Usually we think that power lies with the individual subject with how powerful the image of one person is But sometimes the power of photography is all about the photographer Tags Holocaust photograph roman vishniac Share on Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Email Bio Latest Posts Jina Moore By way of introduction the word jina means name in Swahili and the overcomer in Sanskrit Global Women s Rights reporter BuzzFeedNews Africa adjacent Website Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Instagram Latest Posts By Jina Moore Turns out FGM is for men Praise posts From the Department of Gentle Suggestions Previous article Creepiest Google searcher ever and a confidentiality conundrum Next article Watch for it You may also like From the Department of Gentle Suggestions Why this rocks J Lester Feder on same sex marriage in South Africa Things you should read this weekend 3 Comments GKB says April 5 2010 at 10 41 am But sometimes the power of photography is all about the photographer Recently there s been a lot of buzz about a photographer booted from a competition due to over manipulating an image Photojournalistic ethics in the age of Photoshop are constantly questioned and rightly so there needs to be accountability But beyond blatantly cloning out pieces of an image the photographer has immense control over an image before he or she ever releases the shutter Framing lighting what you bring in to the frame what you leave out these are all decisions that influence the final image Every image is subjective and that means the photographer has tremendous power over what is presented as fact to the world a frightening and sobering call for responsible reporting even while acknowledging that you re skewing the story whether you want to or not Thanks for this piece Jina Reply Graham says April 5 2010 at 10 45 am Hmmm rang some bells here I m only just getting into photography in Rwanda Not sure I d feel confident enough to do portraits I d

  • The cultural aestethics of being half-naked | Jina Moore
    and a Dane and what feels like a brothel s worth of women Most of the women are suitably clothed most of the time But there seems to be something distinctly male about exposing at least half of your body while lounging around the house Particularly if you re European Unless they re going to work my men are pretty much never wearing a shirt and trousers simultaneously I can t decide if the difference between which of the aforementioned items they choose not to wear is personal or cultural One guy prefers toplessness the other sharing most of his thighs In America we have very refined opinions about whether men should be wearing boxers or briefs and what it means to choose one or the other Sure maybe you have a roommate who occasionally or even often wanders around in his boxers in the morning But if he wanders around in anything that involves more elastic than is needed for a waistband he will be mocked and judged and probably discussed behind his back at parties So that every time one of my dear men wanders by in those little black shorts desperately gripping his bottom it s really really hard for me not to laugh Share on Facebook Twitter Pinterest Google LinkedIn Email Bio Latest Posts Jina Moore By way of introduction the word jina means name in Swahili and the overcomer in Sanskrit Global Women s Rights reporter BuzzFeedNews Africa adjacent Website Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Instagram Latest Posts By Jina Moore Turns out FGM is for men Praise posts From the Department of Gentle Suggestions Previous article Good thing he didn t ask for the Grey Poupon Next article Language Lessons II You may also like We lost everything I can t begin to tell you what
