Pagter commenting on iconic pictures

The daily Poltiken has today published a reader’s comment by Søren Pagter. 


In the article Søren Pagter comments on an interview with Fred Ritchin, where the American photo critic is quoted to say; ”we no longer make iconic images, which can change the world”.


Søren Pagter states that the idea of one single image, which can change anything, is a misunderstanding. This kind world-changing, iconic pictures have never existed and the illusion of such devaluates important photojournalistic work.
