jeangenie: I don't think the photographer understands the statement he's making. Using an iPhone for this is a lose-lose for him.

If people don't like the work, it shows that he is a poor photojournalist, and not necessary.

If people do like the work, it shows that good work can be done with an iPhone ... and again, the guy with the expensive camera isn't necessary.

I grasp what he was trying to say by using the iPhone, but he clearly didn't think it through. There is literally no way that this results in him looking like anything other than another schmuck with a camera phone.

You've completely missed the point. It's not about the expensive equipment vs the iPhone. An iPhone in the hands of a skilled photographer can make amazing images that tell a story. An iPhone in the hands of a reporter is just a reporter taking snapshots.
