awareness on "artistic"egoism

I was speechless.It stroke me right to the heart.
This video , made me re-think on an issue i'm always very sensible while taking photos.
Trying not to be egoist.
I always try not to act this way , eventhough sometimes it might be hard .
I mean , you just can't fight the instict to paralyse that special moment.
I don't know what forces me to do it , but sometimes it can be stronger than you.
You just want to capture that "very moment".
Nevertheless, what I have always tried to do , while taking photos of people,was approaching to them in a very sincere & honest way.
I know this might be risky on loosing the candid moments and the naivete, but still i don't find it honest to get advantage of some situations that might turn out to be "great artistic hits".
I don't find it ethic , to profit by such hard situations , just to achieve , a genuine work.
Of course i don't have any word on photojournalist or war photographers , they're just documenting a fact , that's gonna be history later on.
My word is , on popular-wanna be photographers , that barefacedly try to get this "particular gems that are screaming human pain" .
This one , yes i do detest.
We owe some respect & reliance to the people whose feelings of (pain,madness,loneliness etc) are documented and scattered everywhere.This is the least that should be done.

She would've taken the last photo afterward. I don't think in normal cases, probably you and me, is there any ego involved. She killed the girl knowingly so.

Ah moj Eni sa me trishtove(nuk eshte faji yt);sa e veshtire te gjesh njerez te kultivuar!!

kamomil: i wouşldn't say she killed the girl, i thinks hers it was just an instict she suffers later.

xheni: siç e thoja dhe ne shkrim e dashur Xheni,deri sa te mos jete me qellime perfitim fame asgje nuk me duket e gabuar.
