The constant reminder of human cruelty, desperation and lack of diplomatic channels, you mean?
Human mortality is a given.
Violence… not so sure.

not sure I understand the question… Are you asking if the dead Arab justifies the war, or if the photo itself justifies the journalist’s trip?

I say photography is possibly the best media, as almost everyone can relate and it effects them emotionally. Everyone can make a story up for a picture, and if you can’t you’re brain dead.

do it

Good luck, and I hope you do well.

It depends where you go. I have been all over Israel for a couple months and contrary to what the media shows it is not as dangerous and poor as it seems.

The photo is strangely conceptualized. I mean it looks like a Renaissance painting.

Journalists are known for staging photos. All the dolls and teddy bears laying near a destroyed home after an earthquake or a war are put there to give a photo a stronger message.
