The Cameraman is a cartoon version of a true story about a bunch of first-graders, and how being behind the camera can rob you of your humanity even if the camera’s not real.
The moral of the story is: Humanity before photography, not the other way around.
I believe it is especially important for a documentary photographer, bringing photos of pain and suffering, to emotionally connect with his subject, and use his photography skills to convey a message that would help the subject in need, and not exploit his subject for self-promotion, or self-advancement. Documentary photography is a great responsibility, and something that should not be taken lightly.
