战争摄影/WAR PHOTOGRAPHY

战争摄影

战争摄影通常与新闻摄影和纪实摄影重叠,提供标志性的,有时难以看到的武装冲突及其后果的图像。战争图像通常用于编辑目的,以提高公众对参与战斗区域的认识。

一些最早的战争照片可以追溯到1853年至1856年的克里米亚战争,由罗杰·芬顿拍摄。这些早期的镜头记录了战争的静止图像,如防御工事或士兵和战斗发生后的土地,主要是因为当时可用的摄影技术有限。

20世纪拍摄的更现代的战争摄影包括第一次世界大战和第二次世界大战的编年史,通常由士兵和摄影记者拍摄。然而,随着技术的进步,批量生产的图像导致通常可怕的场景过度饱和,观众对这种摄影的价值和历史意义变得麻木不仁。

然而,武装冲突今天仍然被俘虏。由于这项工作的危险性,记者和战地摄影师通过国际公约指定了特别保护,以防止在实地造成致命伤害 – 但这仍然是一个危险的职业。


WAR PHOTOGRAPHY

Often overlapping with photojournalism and documentary photography, war photography delivers iconic, sometimes difficult to look at imagery of armed conflict and its aftermath. War imagery is usually used for editorial purposes to enhance public awareness of areas engaged in combat.

Some of the earliest war photographs can be traced back to the Crimean War of 1853 to 1856, captured by Roger Fenton. These early shots recorded stationary imagery of war, like fortifications or soldiers and land before and after battles took place, mainly because of the limited photographic technology that was available at the time.

More modern war photography taken in the 20th century included chronicles of World War I and World War II and were usually captured by soldiers, as well as by photojournalists. However, as technology advanced, mass-produced images led to an over-saturation of the often terrible scenes, with viewers becoming desensitized to the value and historical significance of this type of photography.

Nevertheless, armed conflicts are still captured today. Due to the dangerous nature of the job, journalists and war photographers have designated special protection through international conventions to prevent fatal injury in the field — but it remains a risky occupation.
