ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — A man depicted in a prizewinning photography series about violence in Rochester says the essay misrepresented who he was.
The portrait was taken by Italian photographer Paolo Pellegrin, who shot it on assignment with the Magnum Photo agency as part of a look at a high-crime Rochester area called "The Crescent."
The photo shows a man carrying a rifle and an ammunition belt. He appears to be standing sentry in front of a cinder-block wall.
But the man in the picture, Shane Keller, tells the Democrat and Chronicle (http://on.rocne.ws/Xs8lMm) that it was actually taken in his basement in Brighton, a well-to-do suburb.
In a response posted on the website of the National Press Photographer Association, Pellegrin said the felt the Crescent was "a conceptual designation," not purely a geographical one.
