The Atlantic credits my photo to someone else

    Newer Older

    I have a Google alert for the Haymarket Riot, so noticed that the Atlantic blogged about it. Unfortunately, for some reason, some one else was credited for use of my photo.

    If you look at the photo, it still has my copyright embedded in the EXIF data, and there is my signature! I wonder if this guy has used my photo elsewhere too?

    I contacted both the author, and Yoni Goldstein. Let's see how long it takes to correct the record.

    TheeErin and poisonpixie7 added this photo to their favorites.

      Ugh. Good luck getting this corrected.

      That sucks, though I see they've already corrected it.

      I hope that it was just an oversight or a simple error. Anyway, it's fixed now.

      Interestingly, they are linking it back to this page.

      I reached out to the author of the post, Emily Badger, and she got it corrected quickly, which is nice. I’m a little concerned that the organization that hosted the Haymarket 125 event has been sending my photo out as part of their package for a while.

      An editor at the Atlantic emailed me, in part: "The photos came from the organization Pocket Guide to Hell ( and [we] worked with Paul Durica.”

      I haven’t heard from them yet.

      Oddly enough, The Atlantic Cities link comes back to this image, not the original! Better eMail them again...

      at least it got cleared up within 24 hours of me kvetching, which is more than I can say for some other large news corporations…
