Everything About this Picture is Wrong

One of my favourite iTunes applications for the iPad is The Guardian Eyewitness, a photography portal that brings in usually great photos almost every day from the news. Along with The Frame and The Big Picture, I get my daily dose of superb street photography and photojournalism.

A few days ago, the photo below landed on my iPad. According to the website:

An Israeli motorist runs down a masked Palestinian youth who was among a group of boys throwing stones at Israeli cars in the mostly Arab east Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan.

This isn’t the first time I am subjected to such an image, and I have seen much worse on The Frame and The Big Picture.

You can’t stop and think that everything about this photo is wrong.
