A Place at the Table   


I read the article by Sherry Ricchiardi, "Distorted Picture," in the August/September issue, and it is one of the best and most comprehensive I have seen on this topic. It is very well done and very well crafted. As a lifelong photojournalist, I like the idea of the word-oriented people in our business being sensitized to these issues in such an excellent way. It is a real service to those of us who live in the visual world. This article gives us a place at the table with the rest of the journalistic community.
