Tamil Protest...
Posted By: paulyrichard, 04-24-2009, 10:58 AM

...in Westminster, London.



I was given permission to photograph Subramanyam Parameswaran a Tamil, who is currently 17 days into his hunger strike, (started 7/4/09). He has lost his entire family in the genocide perpetrated by the Sri Lankan government armed forces against the Tamils.

This is as close as I was allowed...

The public event is free to photograph, of course. But with Subramanyam, on what could possibly be his deathbed, I had to ask permission out of respect because its a very sensitive subject.

Cheers guys.

I agree with that sentiment. Too many photographers and journalists think it is their right to pry into everything. But there is no such thing as rights without obligations and responsibilities.
