You may have seen some of the photographs before, as when we posted on this image and The Practice of Domination in Everyday Life.  There are many others, however, and many that are likely to amaze.  Some also will raise questions about who should be the photographic subject, what should count as an artistic image, and how spectators should respond to eloquent images of suffering.  If photojournalism is to remain a public art, we will need both the photographs and an engaged audience capable of debating these issues and more.
