If you want to highlight something bad should you avoid taking visually interesting photographs of it?

Will a well composed, visually interesting shot attract more people and make them think about the problem or will it make them think the problem is less important?

What are your thoughts?

Unfortunately I do not think that a "good" picture will change the way people think. Because it´s noticed more like art than a document. Hope I explained well, I´m no nativ speaker.:oops:

A good photo is a good photo, regardless of the subject. But if you want to show something unpleasant, you need to consider how much to emphasize what so that it will give the viewer the psychological effect you want. To my eye, for this reason and to improve the composition, the top photo would qualify as a good picutre if you cropped the left edge to somewhere around the middle of the bottom of the orange bottle.

Ooh, a discussion! :-)

I say make the shot visually interesting to hold people's attention longer and to present yourself, subliminally, as a competent messenger who ought to be taken seriously.

One kind of exception might occur when chaos is part of the problem. You're covering a riot, getting action shots. People in a crowd are yelling, throwing bottles through windows, setting fire to cars. An image with someone's arm and hand in the foreground, out of focus and covering part of a fight in the background, would be technically poor but could be a very good picture to communicate what being there was like. That's different from trying to illustrate something bad by pursuing general badness.

The remnants of a day.

We must not run away from reality but face it. With respect. I don't have a street photo to illustrate, so I'll use this. A shocking sight to many in our alienated-from-nature culture, but to these people the end of a family meal. A celebratory meal after a successful hunt. A dangerous hunt, too, as the best way to hunt monkeys is up in the canopy where they live. A branch may break under your foot, or whatever. On my second trip to Brazil I was told that a man whom I had known on my first trip had fallen to his death.

I don't know about that. I can think of several great photographs and some bodies of work that changed peoples thinking.

I would say look at the work of W Eugene Smith. He did a piece on a fishing village of Minamata Japan. It was a documentary project This one photo had a huge impact though.

Heres some history
https://en.wikipedia.o​rg/wiki/Minamata,_Kuma​moto (external link)

The famous Eddie Adams photo (Vietnam). It was one of many the helped turn the tide against the war.

and this one by Nick Ut

All great photographs with a huge social impact.

You are right, these pictures have a social impact. But disregarding the first pciture the others are not made in an artistic way, at least to my eyes. No doubt, they are very good, but documentary.

Unfortunately I ´m not able to explain much better or use a wording that fits better. My vocabulary is pretty restricted. Last but not least I maybe understood Dan´s question in a wrong way.

And I would say they all very good in both regards. Documentary and photojournalism can be art just like any other type of photography.

Another important documentary piece that was both.
