Stabes: Personally, I find images like this offensive and highly invasive of people's privacy (regardless of whether permission was obtained). To gain from other's misery... well... I hope the photographer can live with it. I certainly couldn't.

What I said was that I (that would be me!) find the taking of photos of suffering people suffering deeply invasive of their right to privacy, not too mention stepping all over their dignity. Clearly this photographer, and others, feel its okay. Fine. That's for them to live with.
