Photographer and rioter doing their job


General Photography

“Photographer and rioter doing their job” - that’s the one line that stuck with me in the video posted here. Make sure to watch the whole thing to see some very cliche photographs and to see how they were produced. This is related to a private project I started earlier this year: Using the war in Libya as a basis I started to investigate cliches of photojournalism, filling various folders on my computer with images. It’s extremely disheartening for me to see how easy it has been to add photographs almost on a daily basis. I don’t know what I’m going to do with this collection, I suppose at some stage there’ll be a post about photojournalistic cliche images.
