Miscellaneous - Daouk: Photography profession safeguarded by Constitution
 

Thu 23/02/2012 20:39

NNA - 23/2/2012 Information Minister Walid Daouk underlined that photography line of work falls within public liberties guaranteed by the Constitution, stressing that this profession should be safeguarded and highly esteemed.

Minister Daouk's words came during his sponsorship of a ceremony held by "Press Photographers' Syndicate" on Thursday afternoon, marking "Martyr Press Photographer Day" and the launching of a competition on environment.
The event was attended by Iraqi Embassy's Charge D'Affaires, Ahmed Mahmoud Ghaleb, Information Ministry Director General Hassan Falha, Photographers Syndicate Dean, Karim Hajj, and a number of concerned dignitaries.
"A photographer should be able to assume his duties across all Lebanese territories without exception and under best conditions," Daouk said, stressing that press liberties guarantee journalists and photographers' work wherever they exist.

The Minister also highlighted the importance of protecting photography cameras, stressing that no one is allowed to attack a journalist or his apparatuses whether by security forces or others.

"We shall not allow that journalists or photographers' dignity be tampered with, regardless of justifications or pretexts," Daouk emphasized.

On another note, Daouk saluted fallen press photographers on their day, highly appreciating photographers' efforts to obtain valuable pictures or images whose profound and symbolic meanings reflect more than thousand words.

Saluting martyr photographers on their anniversary, Daouk pointed out that they sacrifice their lives in favor of their profession.

"They work to convey the real picture to all the people... and most of the times they act as unknown soldiers," Daouk said.

Turning to the issue of choosing environment as the topic for the Syndicate's competition, Daouk considered that a press photographer is the most competent side of unveiling all violations or trespasses on the Lebanese environment in all its spheres.

"A press photographer is the most courageous and truthful in exposing all these environment violations and trespasses," Daouk deemed.

On the other hand, the ceremony included a distribution of awards on competition winners and appreciation certificates on a number of press photographers.
