I guess I just don't see why all of a sudden a practice that has been pretty common since the advent of photography (remember Mathew Brady's civil war photographs) is wrong in this one instance and not the countless others of the exact same thing.
Well, for me personally, feel f your JOB is to go to dangerous places to document things for the world (like war photographers) then you should be paid--but other than that, I would not like to see anyone profiting from photos of tragedies they just happened to be there for. I know t happens--I can still feel it is wrong.
