I think I agree to a point with everyone, and that is the problem.
The line I believe must be set by you and not be one imposed by society or institutions. I think the line moves depending upon the situation and the reason/nature of your evolvement, surly the war/conflict photographer has a responsibility to all to show all facets of the situation both good and bad.
I believe in certain circumstances, as in the image above, reducing the chances of positive identification of the subject would be better. For in today’s world images can be transmitted and in the media before NOK are aware and that should surely play a part in you process.
In the end it is down to the individual photographer as to where the line is and whether he or she are prepared to sacrifice their personal standards of taste and morality for the commercial value of an image, i.e. the money.
A ongoing discussion no doubt, both here and photography in general. Interesting none the less and I look forward to reading other peoples take on it.
