To be honest I didn't find your example distasteful,I was expecting much worse as my wife works in a nursing home where some of the patients are a bad as it gets.I do however find the term fair game to be distasteful when it's used to describe people who are in a sad state.

However you need to ask yourself would you consider yourself or mum or dad to be fair game if they or you were in such a pitiful state.For documentary and awareness purposes I guess it has to be done from time to time but beyond that I don't see any good reason for doing so.

I did not take this photograph in question.
