News broadcast images of conflict and the aftermath are predominantly militarized and subject to decision-making by authorities to mainly emphasize the correctness of one's position in contemporary battles in manipulative and righteous ways.
It potentially influences the viewers' perceptions of the rightness and wrongness of war that may assist in views of righteous dominance. Moral justice and compassion fade when news corporations edit or change specific images. The ongoing sense of goodness and normality change to righteousness and can potentially falsify the narratives in particular conflict events. It is not so much the type of image shown; it is the intentions and motivations of the corporations for broadcasting militarised conflict and aftermath imagery.
These images resulted from where I photographed a blank led digital screen and type certain words and obscured these to visually reflect those moments where one starts to think about this type of broadcast imagery and what else may be happening in and nearby to that conflict scene and the aftermath. More often than not, photographic imagery of resistance, rebuilding, and normal daily activities are suppressed or not considered newsworthy. It is my endeavour to reference other photographic imagery methods that reflect humanistic and conciliatory pathways.
