Orange Farm Anti AIDS Club

I never took any classes about the ethics of photography or film. Inevitably, I generally have a guilty feeling whenever entering a zone in which I am documenting the work of NGOs, as if I am invading such space – an outsider amidst the locals. This is precisely the moment when ethics play an important role. Is it ok to photograph and film places and people without their consent? I believe profit (and nonprofit) borderlines the answer. There is no profit involved in this project; yet, I generally refrain from documenting anything I do not have permission – otherwise the wrong impression might be bestowed.
