The Bystanders: photographers who didn't step in to help - in pictures
on 31 July 2012
"What’s it like to witness a mob attack, a starving child or the aftermath of a bomb, and take a photograph instead of stopping to help? As two journalists are under fire for recording rather than intervening in a sex attack in India, we ask people who know."
This is really, really important and really, really moving. The reflections, paired with photographs, have shaken me to the core this morning. I think, how can this be life? My stomach hurts and I feel weak, reading these depictions of humanity. But these are, truly, the questions, as creators, we need to never stop asking.
