On the Media on the Conflict Genre
One of my favorite podcasts, “On the Media” had a great show last week with an interview w/ my hero Sy Hersh. Then, an analysis of Capa’s lost photos with the director of ICP, and later, a great piece with journalist Jim Lewis, who makes a strong argument against war photography, based on his own experiences in the Congo.
“I would be talking to friends and family and people that I worked with and trying to explain what was going on in the Congo and what I had seen, and I would show them these photographs along with others. And I just found that they got in the way of trying to tell the story I wanted to tell, and that, in fact, rather than clarifying the story, the shock of the photographs had a tendency to derail both my telling of the story and other people’s understanding of it.” - Jim Lewis
