Pictures in ICTD reporting

When we read about technologies in the developing world, they are often accompanied by a certain type of picture. The visual language is: Cultural tradition, as old and different from ours as possible, meets modern technology. Shotgun Shack over at Stuff Expat Aid Workers Like calls this type of visual communication „development + technology p*rn“. For all who look for images on ICTD stories, his ironic analysis is very much worth reading as something to keep in mind when thinking about the next ones to use.
