The latest on the Marco Vernashi/Pulitzer Center story


General Photography

If you’ve followed the discussion of photographer Marco Vernashi’s story about child sacrifices in Uganda, funded and promoted by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting (see my earlier posts here and here), there is a new response by the photographer, published on the Pulitzer Center’s website (via). As I noted earlier, what truly matters here is the issue Vernashi was trying to cover - child sacrifices in Uganda - and hopefully, the way some of the photographs were obtained is not getting in the way of that story. For that to happen, the facts have to be made available (there are various videotaped interviews now available), as seems to be happening now.
