Photographer Mathew Brady captured over 7000 photos of the US Civil War (including the portrait of Lincoln that would be used for the $5 bill), which have become the most important visual documentation of the period. He died in debt after the US gov’t did not buy his master-copies after the war. source
The worst thing is to feel that as a photographer I am benefiting from someone else’s tragedy. This idea haunts me. It’s something I have to reckon with every day because I know that if I ever allowed genuine compassion to be overtaken by personal ambition, I will have sold my soul. The only way I can justify my role is to have respect for the other person’s predicament. The extent to which I do that is the extent to which I become accepted by the other; and to that extent, I can accept myself.
So, for reasons of logistics, I ended up wearing Leia to a photo shoot with the Saber Guild last weekend. The resulting shots were AMAZING. I am so impressed with our photographer. Also, our Kylo was a great sport.
On June 6th 1940, Hitler and his general staff observed the advance of the German forces through France during operation “Fall Rot” from this FHQ in Brûly-De-Pesche, initially called “Waldwiese”, but was later called “Wolfschlucht 1″, as Hitler personally preferred this name more.
