So, I was browsing around for some inspiration for photojournalism features, I found a pretty interesting art review. As technology flourishes, photographers increase the use of software to create visual fictions. However, some photographers, including Fazal Sheikh, try to help visual truth survive. In other words, Sheikh, like other documentary photographers, try to do “Straight Photography.” Straight Photography is photography that attempts to depict a scene as it is actually seen, which means no manipulation. Sheikh is currently exhibiting his images from the “Beloved Daughters: Photographs at the Museum of Photographic Arts in San Diego, California. Photographers like Sheikh are awesome and a true inspiration. I really like doing straight photography. I really wish I could check out the exhibit.
