“The technology of war has risen enormously, so the pictures that we’re seeing coming out of Afghanistan are of soldiers shooting rifles, whereas the actual warfare that’s being performed is predator drones at 40,000ft firing Hellfire missiles at countries that we’re not even at war with, where are those pictures? Where are the photographs of Special Forces shooting Osama Bin Laden? There aren’t any. The warfare isn’t being portrayed at all, because we’re stuck with the fucking cliché of men running across fields shooting at things and it’s really not how warfare is fought nowadays. We’re in the middle of a war with Iran and it involves America and Israel using computer viruses to destroy Iranian factories, how do you photograph that?! I don’t know, but I wish some photographers were pouring out of colleges with great ideas about how you do, do that because that’s the important stuff. I don’t think we’d call it photojournalism though when it comes along, we’ll call it something else.” -Simon Norfolk
