On Is Instagram 'debasing photography'? news story (291 comments in total)

It may not be "debasing" photographic art, but it is certainly destroying any sense of individuality about images filtered through the process. Once upon a time image processing was about showing your own creative vision of the image by the steps you took. These days with Instagram its about perpetuating something off-the-shelf because you're either too lazy or too stupid to create something unique of your own. Just my opinion, of course.

Dustinash: I doubt its staged because the lighting absolutely sucks. Its got decent story, decent composition but I would not consider this a world calibre peice of art. It lacks something compelling.

Ummm it's not meant to be "art" in that sense. This is a case of life imitating art for some, sure, but it's really about human suffering and how it transcends culture, race and any other division you'd care to ascribe to people. "It lacks something compelling"? Are we looking at the same image?????

Really? And would you rather it wasn't portrayed at all, much less in the context of human suffering?
