A Rose By Any Other Name...

Peter Brook of Prison Photography emailed this to me yesterday; and debate and discuss all you want, and I mean that sincerely- it definitely needs be. But the one thing that cannot be ignored, debated or disguised is that this venture is specifically tailored to profit from the misery of others... (and as far as this tragedy is concerned- it aint even the first).

$4000? Yikes! This is a sick venture but it's actually a pretty thin line between Zoriah and a lot of the mainstream Haiti coverage. Yes, the world needs to see images of Haiti, but a lot of earthquake photos I've seen seem to glamorize and objectify as much as educate. Anyway, Zoriah's site seems ripe for parody. Stay tuned...
