A couple of months back, the Bronx Documentary Center held a panel with four famous photojournalists discussing the ethics of photojournalism. The panel was held in part with their gallery showing called Altered Images–which displaying manipulated images in photojournalism over the past 150 years.

The photojournalists in attendance were Joao Silva, Ricky Flores, Joseph Rodriguez and Eugene Richards. The moderator of the panel was Whitney Richardson, photo editor at The New York Times. Throughout the panel, the photojournalists speak of hardships and balancing their thoughts on community vs what editors at papers need them to do and later on have interesting things to say about American media.

The video is after the jump and is well over an hour. so it’s probably best listened to or watched later on in your day. Additionally, the language tends to get courser–but what you’ll find is a very real and uncensored experience.
