Feature Shoot asked 13 photographers, ‘Has there ever been a time when you felt guilty for taking a photograph?’

Yes, and no. A sampling:

Noah Rabinowitz:

I’ve never felt guilt in making an image, only its distribution. Context is paramount to image-based communication. The more age, experience and perspective I accumulate, the more thought I put into the implications about every image I put out into the world.

Irina Popova:

Yes. Basically, I feel guilty most of the time – not only for taking photographs, but for being alive, eating, sleeping, looking, etc. That’s why I try to become better and establish better communication about what I’m doing and why.

Anthony S. Karen:

No, because I’d never compromise my morals to the point of being in that position. If in question, I’m more of the type to put my camera down altogether (and have).
