We wrote earlier today about ISIS sending death threats to Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey. Now we know where they stole the image in their blog post from.
I got in touch with him to find out his thoughts on seeing his work appropriated by the terror group. He told me:
“As far as I know it’s the first time a terrorist organization has used one of my images. I think it would be in bad taste to suggest that ISIS has good taste in photography, so I won’t. Perhaps they don’t understand the concept of copyright.”
Not only is Abosch an internationally renowned portrait photographer, he’s also an entrepreneur. We’ve previously written about his OneOne secure messaging service and popular photography apps Lenka and Kimiko.
If you’re looking to take your own photos and not steal them, those apps aren’t a bad place to start.
