Help in a tragedy or take photos?
Apr 20, 2012

I am not a pro and rarely even take a peek in this forum. However ever since reading the blub at dpreview, and at other sites, about the 2012 Pulitzer Prize photography winners, the following has haunted me. Does one take photographs or help (and possibly save a life)?

One of the winners was quoted as saying:

Women were asking me, "Help, help, help,"' Mr. Hossaini said. 'I couldn't. I was recording and I was taking pictures.'
