->> I know Chuck. It's a sad state of affairs, not only in photojournalism, journalism or other professions. Bankers, doctors, cyclists, etc... Everyone is out to cheat and try to get away with it. This in an age where a few taps of the keyboard will uncover your scheme. It's a shame.

->> Holy crap. This is a weird turn of events.

I don't get why you would even consider doing that? Its hard to get stories to work out the way you want them to. Thats why this job is so rewarding when you look at something you were able to get and you're proud of it. For a Magnum photographer to decide to throw that away and ruin everything for himself really surprises me.

I'll be waiting to see what POYI does with his Photographer of the Year status.

->> I get winning is cool, but how can they ethically think it's ok?

Like, I get upset if we run a cover image that has been obviously altered to the point of parody and don't credit it as a "photo illustration."

Shew.

Looks like there is a response about the photos from the photographer.

->> I'll say what I said to my friends in regards to this.

He says that he never said the photo wasn't a portrait. From what I can tell, he never said it was. It feels a little like he's toeing the line between what is considered a portrait and what is not. When I first look at this photo, it struck me as a moment, a frame in which someone, who honestly to me looked vulnerable and caught off-guard, is going about his business. It didn't strike me as a portrait at all.

I think the photos are fantastic. Obviously beyond my body of work. I just think that this is a sticky situation of splitting some really important hairs right now.
