La primera foto ganó un premio, la segunda hizo saltar la polémica

politicaysociedad:

La polémica se ha desatado en Suecia con la imagen del fotógrafo Paul Hansen, que ha ganado el premio Swudish Picture of the Year Awards 2011, publica Terra de España.

En la foto podemos ver a Fabienne, una joven haitiana de sólo 14 años que fue asesinada por la policía después de ser descubierta saqueado una tienda y robando dos sillas de plástico y unos cuadros enmarcados luego del terremoto que azotó Haití.

Ahora se sabe que en el momento de la muerte de esta niña había 14 fotoperiodistas presentes, lo que ha desatado las críticas y un debate sobre la ética de los fotógrafos.

La controversia empezó cuando el fotógrafo Nathan Weber publicó una fotografía en la que aparecía la misma imagen que en la foto ganadora pero desde una perspectiva en la que se ve a la niña tendida en el suelo rodeada de fotógrafos.

El debate que se está librando en Suecia gira en torno a la pregunta “¿habrían donado menos para el desastre si esa foto no se hubiese publicado? O ¿se habrían destinado menos recursos y profesionales?”.

¿Qué opinan de la ética detrás de esta fotografía? ¿Cuál escena es más chocante? ¿Cuál es más merecedora del premio?.

Do you love nursing your baby? Does your little one “perform” every time he or she is at your breast? I am working on new breastfeeding series that will include the sounds of nursing babies. I am looking for moms to contribute audio recordings of babies feeding. If you are interested in having the sounds of your baby feeding included in the piece please let me know.

“Somos de Maiz” Melanie Cervantes, 13 x 19 inches, 5 - Color, Handmade Screenprint on Heavyweight White Archival Paper, Printed in San Leandro, 2013 In 2003 during my final year studying at UC Berkeley a Professor in the Microbial Ecology in the Department of Environmental Science, Ignacio Chapela,  was denied tenure. David Quist, a graduate student at the time and Chapela had co-authored an article, two years earlier,  about how genetically modified corn from the U.S. was being dumped into the Mexican market and contaminating native maíz crops. During the “final” days of his contract he held office hours, day and night, outside the doors of California Hall (which houses the university administration’s offices). My roommate cooked Chapela dinner and we came out to support his struggle…
