Absolutely loved this cynical post – An Essay on Photojournalists’ Scarves…Or Not – on Travel Photographer Tewfic El-Sawy’s website. It actually wasn’t written by him but was submitted by an “anonymous” photographer.

Here’s a snippet:

“The first reason for photojournalists wearing scarves is that these instantly and with certainty identifies you as a PHOTOJOURNALIST, and removes you from the pool of suckers known simply as “photographers”, especially “art” photographers.

The second reason photojournalists love scarves (especially those of ethnic origin) is that it tells non-photojournalists know that we are exotic, and that we do exotic, non 9 to 5, non traditional type things.

The third reason is that wearing the ethnic scarf will make other people instantly assume the photojournalist has a deep connection with, has spent time living with, has created a powerful but yet unseen photographic essay about, the ethnic group that wears that particular scarf.
