Time Magazine Top Ten

Time magazine has presented their top 10 photographs of 2012. Strong images with powerful sentiment to move you.

But are they acceptable?  Some of the ten are of deeply personal moments, including in grief.


Do these represent great photo-journalism, bringing to our attention these atrocities, illuminating the horrors of war happening now.  Or, are they voyeuristic, trivialising individual loss in the game to find the most shocking image to gain copy.  I really don’t know.
