An Eye-Opening Look at How Many Conflict Photos Are Staged

An Eye-Opening Look at How Many Conflict Photos Are Staged.

Here’s a fascinating video in which Italian photographer Ruben Salvadori demonstrates how dishonest many conflict photographs are. Salvadori spent a significant amount of time in East Jerusalem, studying the role photojournalists play in what the world sees. By turning his camera on the photographers themselves, he shows how photojournalists often influence the events they’re supposed to document objectively, and how photographers are often pushed to seek and create drama even in situations that lack it.

You might start looking at conflict photos in the news a lot differently after watching this

and now for the more fun video….again click on the title in blue to be taken through to the video..

Artist Mocks the Absurd Poses in Fashion Photos by Showing Them in Real Life

Artist Mocks the Absurd Poses in Fashion Photos by Showing Them in Real Life.

Have you ever noticed how ridiculous many of the poses seen in fashion and glamor photographs are? Artist Yolanda Dominguez has a project called Poses highlighting how absurd and artificial the poses are by having a group of women do them in public locations and filming the reactions of passersby. It’s interesting how something so ridiculous when seen in real life can look so “normal” when done by a model in the context of a fashion photograph.

Hope you enjoy 🙂
