Citizen reportage, digital photography and Flickr

Australian Embassy bombing in JakartaAs Jason Kottke noted on his weblog: “Flickr is becoming a good place to find photos of notable events.” On Flickr’s weblog, Caterina Fake reports:

“As noted on Metafilter, photos of the Australian Embassy bombing in Jakarta appeared on Flickr before any of the major news services had gotten it up on their sites. It’s unclear if the original photo was taken by the person who posted it or not, but within an hour the photo pictured above, taken by Reza Anwar, was uploaded, and another one too (see all his pics here). Thank you, Jakarta Flickr users!

“Citizen reportage is on the rise, as we’ve seen here on Flickr with Hurricane Frances (143 photos) and the Republican National Convention (620 photos) in the past few weeks.”
