The Ethics of Representation - A Follow-Up

As a follow up to this post yesterday, and to a couple of others from earlier in the year, I want to recommend this short video interview with Don McCullin at The Guardian. I thank Tim Atherton for bringing it to my attention. In general, McCullin's reflections - the straightforward moral seriousness with which he speaks of his life and experience - really do challenge those who treat photographers of war and disaster as ethically defective. More specifically, it makes me wonder whether Sean O'Hagan recalls having spoken with McCullin a month or so ago. If so, I am not sure how he could have written the column I criticized yesterday. It is all a bit mystifying.
