If you are interested in documentary photography then you should see the Spring 2014 edition of Aperture. You can get it from villagebookstore.co.uk by mail order or in person. I have no connection other than being a satisfied customer.
On page 29 Susan Meiselas says:
“Do you know who you are making photographs for? How will the photographs serve the community? Photographers often start with a passionate engagement with their subject, but an audience can easily get focused on the narrator, at the expense of the narrative. For a photographer to be effective, they must face both of these questions.”
For me this could not have come at a better time. Now I need to answer the questions! Can you?
