  • Prof. Rick Hornik at Stony Brook wrung this admission from the New York Times, whose reporter moved live bodies instead of dead ones.\nFrom: rick hornik Date: Thu, Oct 7, 2010 at 4:15 PMSubject: Fwd: Staged photographsTo the Public Editor (New York Times) \nOn page C32 of today's paper, the photograph of a MOMA exhibition has three perfectly placed individuals gazing at the art. As a former editor at Time, the composition strikes me as too-good-to-be-true to be accidental. Does the Times have a policy on staged photographs?\nRichard HornikMr. Hornik:Thank you for writing us and bringing this to our attention.  I wanted to bring your attention to the Editor’s Note on A2 of today’s paper, which confirms that the photo you alerted us to was a staged photo and that staged photos are against Times policy.  The link below is to view the Editor’s Note on The Times Web site.http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/07/pageoneplus/corrections.htmlOnce again, thanks for bringing this to our attention.  It is greatly appreciated. Best,Joseph BurgessOffice of the Public EditorThe New York Times\nThe prohibition on posed photos is nearly universal. Here’s the National Press Photographers Association’s language, in part:\nCode of Ethics: http://www.nppa.org/professional_development/business_practices/ethics.html\nJuly 10, 2004\nPhotojournalists and those who manage visual news productions are accountable for upholding\nthe following standards in their daily work:\n1. Be accurate and comprehensive in the representation of subjects.\n2. Resist being manipulated by staged photo opportunities.\n3. Be complete and provide context when photographing or recording subjects. Avoid\nstereotyping individuals and groups. Recognize and work to avoid presenting one's own biases in\nthe work.\n5. While photographing subjects do not intentionally contribute to, alter, or seek to alter or\ninfluence events.\n
