The Stories No One Wants to See and No One Wants to Cover
June 7th, 2009
with Andrea Bruce
It is dangerous and thankless. Very few news organizations want to publish the photos and even fewer people want to actually look at them. Some people call the war in Iraq “the story of our generation.” It is important, without a doubt. As is Afghanistan. AIDS in Africa. The Israeli/Palestinian conflict. But they are stories people don’t want to see. Maybe they have seen the same images too often. Or maybe they are frustrated by the hopelessness of the situations. We will explore ways to help our photos reach our audience and make them want to pay attention.
