The unnapointed guardians of morailty

A great quote from the legendary John Morris:
"The Picture Editor is the voyeurs' voyeur, the person who sees what the photographers themselves have seen but in the bloodless realm of the contact sheet... and now pixels on the screen. Picture Editors find the representative picture, the image that will be seen by others perhaps around the world. they are unwitting (or witting, as the case may be) tastemakers, the unnapointed guardians of morality, the talent brokers, the accomplices to celebrity. Most important - or disturbing - they are the fixers of 'reality and of 'history'.".......
