Photojournalist, Ruben Salvadori, reveals Big Business, not truth, behind conflict images

After photographing some weekly riots in east Jerusalem, Salvadori began questioning his role in the ensuing scenes. “I started asking myself questions about our role as photographers and the implications of our presence on the field,” he says.

He believes that the presence of a group of cameramen, or even just one photographer, can influence people to act for the camera. He shows a photo of Palestinian youths burning an Israeli flag as a message for the camera. “No one else was there at that moment; there were no soldiers – only myself and my camera,” he says.
