Jon Lowenstein’s Photos of Mexican and Central American Migrants’ Stories

"‘Ultimately, you want something to happen from your pictures,’ said Mr. Lowenstein, 42. ‘What’s great about photography is that it can be amorphous. It can be different to each person, and you can use it many different ways, both for good and for bad. You can use it for propaganda that really hurts people or for profit — or you can use it in positive ways and build bridges between communities.’ "

Worth a Look: Jon Lowenstein in Haiti | dvafoto

he has photographed in a radically different way than what I have seen before from Haiti, but also the content of the images seems more considered to me. But of course it is a risky thing to photograph a “news” story in such a “limited” way.
