Being a Female, What is your Clothing Style?

 
In all my previous photography posts, I’ve always tried to bring creative and beautiful compilations for you guys. However, today I have collected some “not-so-pleasing” shots but definitely food for thought.

You would have surely heard of the term “Photojournalism”….a form of news reporting where images are used to tell the entire news story. This type of journalism has rapidly gained prominence since violence and aggression has risen all over the world. Terror attacks, suicide bombings, war in Afghanistan and Iraq, protests and revolt in Egypt….these all are the grueling moments that are happening around us. Therefore, to keep the general public aware, journalists capture these grim realities of life in their cameras and release them over internet.

Lately, I came across some of the most heartbreaking and disturbing pictures of photojournalism and thought of sharing them with my readers. I think it’s high time we all realise that… “Peace can never be achieved through war”. Peace is not about fighting for vengeance. It is a process of removing anger and hatred amongst ourselves. Always remember:

 “The more we sweat in peace the less we bleed in war. “

Let’s have a look at these heart-rending pictures which clearly prove that we are not “human beings” anymore.
 

9/11

 

Chains of freedom

 

Jesus told me where to bomb

 

Make War & Hunger History

 

9/11 collapse

 

Police State

 

Height of Poverty

 

Praying for salvation

 

Real Courage

 

Riots in Egypt

 

Standing Guard

 

Struggling To Survive

 

Symbols of hatred

 

Tears of War

 

Religious Faith…

 

Egypt on fire

 

The  Sit-in

 

Thirsty Child

 

Where is my vote?

 

Held Hostage

 

London Riots

 

Women Fighters

 
 
In the end, let us all make a pledge that from this day forth, we shall strive for peace and eliminate all forms of warfare and conflict. Let’s make this Earth a better place to live. May GOD bless us all!

    I’ve been a long-time subscriber but this is my first time to comment.

    Thank you for sharing these photos. I’m truly humbled and reminded that there is a lot more all of us can do to help those in need.

    These types of photographs definitely elicit strong emotions. Each photo shows what is real. The current state of humanity is not at its best, and though we hope for peace, we know how hard it is to actually see it become real. Especially found Chains of freedom and Height of poverty images troubling.

    The Abandoned Child is the most horrific one. I couldn’t imagine going through that. That’s we need to be grateful for what we have and remember change stats with ourselves.

    I wish you had written something about each photo, to put them in context.

    Photojournalism has been around for a long time. It just took time for photos to get back, developed and then published. Photojournalism got it’s first real leap into real-time public awareness during the Vietnam war when photographers were embedded in the US military units (first time ever). The pulitzer winning photo, published as the cover of time magazine, will be instantly recognized by everyone.

    Photos can explain politics in an incredibly ephemeral manner. It’s sad and at the same time provides awareness to so many areas.

    Most of them were provocative and powerful until I seen the Anti God pic. yet another bash on God pic in the internet. Too bad, could of been nice.

    Very sad pictures – specially the “Abandoned Child” one.
    I also post 12 heart-breaking photos of 2010 on my blog, you should see them.

    Yes, these pictures put us to un-ease, because they confront us with the dark side of human beings. This dark side is and always has been a part of us. Saying things like “…since violence and aggression has risen all over the world” and “we are not human beings anymore” is just outright wrong. A bit of a look into history will show you that things have actually gotten better over time and they still do. Violence is very much part of us because it is part of the choices we have. The dark side will always be there as an option for human beings, and it will be chosen as long as it is easier to survive or to make money with it than with a peaceful choice. So I do much more agree with what you say in the end: It is a PROCESS of removing anger and hatred amongst ourselves. It is actually a process of learning how to share, overcome greed, overcome fear, jealousy, hatred etc – shall we just call it life?

    Its a great collection. I would like to say its speechless and heart breaking photography. some photo like “The abandoned child”, “Tears of War” are so sad and photo like “Jesus told me where to bomb” is funny.

    Wow…thought provoking photos. Everyone should see these to remind them that we don’t live in a world without hurt and pain. Thank you for sharing.

    This not only breaks one’s heart but also makes one aggressive towards the people responsible for this.

    A saw 9/11 from my own windows…
    The most terrible was to see the smoke coming out of Ground Zero every day for almost 2 months after 9/11…

    Wow…some of those are heart wrenching. The abandoned child is difficult to look at. Great photography, but at what price?

    josh t …. very sad your opinion -> there is no god, only in your brain, things which have been told to you, do you actually have your own thoughts ? (or is it too difficult for you?)

    the abondoned child was younger than my daughter. i think sometimes we forget how horrible things really could be for us.

    How can the photographer just stand there taking pictures of a little child on the ground?
    Go pick him/her up, before someone steps on the poor thing.
    Unbelievable

    the pictures were amazing but the quote at the end is nonsense. if “god” was going to bless us thre would be no need for those pictures.

    *sigh*
    this is humanity at its worst.
    we are all to blame for these atrocities, through action or inaction.

    the international market society was doomed to fail from the beginning.

    This affected me greatly. These pictures have opened my eyes toward the poverty and despair in third-world countries like the ones illustrated above. The abandoned child even brought tears to my eyes, just thinking what it must be like, what it is to go through things like that. Even though they happen everyday, these few pictures have finally made me realize what true hunger, pain, and suffering is. We in live in luxury compared to these people, and we regard to it as “not our problem”. These people deserve to live with the same quality of life that we have, no less.

    I AM REALLY FORCED TO SITBACK IN DEEP THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD AND THE AFFECTS OF WAR AND POVERTY. IT IS REALLY A GREAT JOB AND EFFORT TO BRING FORWARD THE FACTS OF LIFE TO MOVE ON TO IMPROVE THE SITUATION.

    i cannot believe that ‘abandoned child’ i really hope the photographer went and picked the child up and took him under his wing or hers, if not i am disgusted. and of somebody of 12 years to be saying this is absolutely unbelievable!!! and are these pics real or are they set up>???

    Photojournalism tells the simplest of truths in the most powerful of ways. It’s impossible to not take these lessons to heart. But when are we going to? This is a reality that should not exist anywhere for anyone! Thanks for giving us this chance to really think.

    Omg, heartwrenching. And here we all are, so wrapped up in our petty problems.

    Really these are distressing pictures….I have never seen anything like this before. The praying of salvation is good.
