I would like to know your opinion.
Personally, I think it is not necessary to damage the dignity of disadvantaged people to make good photography.
1)Do they ask you permission to beggars to shoot?
I personally do not need to show me misery. I know perfectly well that there. Every day I see the observed, I know and I try help whenever I can.
I accept these images when it comes to documenting a specific situation:
Reports showing places unknown information. Reports that show information in a situation "critical" of a disadvantaged group.
I mean ... documents for private and general move consciences!
This is acceptable.
But the rest?
But I do not accept photographers seeking misery and become the "hunters"
It's a mediocre attitude!
Would you like others to take ownership of your privacy without your permission?
All opinions are valid and try to compare views.
Good luck in your shots!
