[Critic and writer, b. 1952, Washington, D.C., lives in New York.]

 Neither a person nor a photograph should be taken at face value; it is more complicated than that. 
 I always believed that photography was subjective, interpretive and certainly did not represent the “truth,” but I did think that its status as a societal and historical referent needed to be both safeguarded and illuminated....now photojournalism is devolving into yet another medium perceived as intending to shock, titillate, sell, distort.
