Explain what a grief shot is? Are there valid uses for them publicly? Why or why not?
This difficult. To exploit someone’s most painful moment – there must be some greater good being served. If it is used to communicate something that could save someone’s life, then yes, capture the photo and print it. But every single photo should be scrutinized to ensure that the purpose is motivated by the welfare of others and not just voyeurism.
