Photographer Detained for Not Practising ‘Real Journalism’
Kamran Yousuf, a freelance photojournalist in Kashmir, was apprehended in early September 2017, for his alleged involvement with incidents involving stone pelting. On January 18, 2018, he was formally charged with ‘criminal conspiracy’, ‘waging war against the government of India’, committing ‘unlawful activities’ and being a ‘member of a terrorist organisation’. He has been incarcerated since then. The National Investigative Agency, does not have any strong evidence against him, so far, but the chargesheet presented by them in the New Delhi court states that Yousuf is not a ‘real journalist’. Drawing from the ethics of photojournalism, the NIA said that a ‘real journalist’ should cover the government’s development activities such as inaugurations, statement of political party, an iftar party during Ramzan, and skill development programmes for unemployed youth, which is the ‘moral duty’ of a journalist. The NIA scanned through his devices, and they stated.... “Kamran Yusuf had hardly taken any video of such an activity, or any video or image of any such activity can rarely be seen on his laptop or mobile that clearly shows his intentions to only cover activities that are anti-national and earn money against such footages.” Yousuf dropped out of college in 2014, and began working for publications like Greater Kashmir, and Kashmir Uzma, where Photograph of Kamran Yousuf via Facebook he photographed the turmoil of the region.

Maganbhai Patel, Known for his Studio Portraits, Passes Away
Maganbhai Patel passed away on 11 February in England. He was 95. He arrived in Coventry, from India, in 1951, and spent his initial years in shared housing, where he mingled with other immigrants. He found work at General Electric, where he was a member of their photographic society. Having already dabbled in photography when he was in India, Patel took photography classes in England. It was during this time that he began receiving assignments to photograph weddings and other events. Eventually, he quit his job to pursue photography full-time. Soon, he opened his own studio, close to home, where he photographed anybody who came in looking to have a portrait made of themselves. These individuals were mostly immigrants like him, hoping to get a passport picture made or to send photographs back home. At 94, his work came into the limelight, when his daughter showcased his work in a local exhibition group. “His work is of huge signifi cance not just for Coventry but the UK because it’s a window into the lives of people as they arrived here and the image they wanted to send home,” says Jason Tilley, curator of Photo Archive Miners.
