Blog Post 4: Seeing Through Race

I agree with Berger’s stance on photography associated with the U.S. Civil Rights Era because there will always be a bias in photography when the person behind the camera chooses what they want to see and not the whole picture. Their eyes see what is in front of them. Their brainĀ  rationalizes it as an image worthy of capture and then they decide to take the picture. They can make the call to turn a blind eye or better yet not submit pictures.

Adding onto the art of selective journalism, editors are needed. Now these editors can decide what to remove, include and implant through each article. Such phrases, objects, reactions from the crowd, and etc. As long as people can choose what they want you to see there will always be a bias narrative and above all an unexpected outcome of the general public.
