I love the photo he made. It looks great. I'm sure he made more and I'd love to see them.

This is the best of Harry... He has a huge, huge heart!

Prince Harry and the herdsman: can we really fall for this imperial hokum? | Jonathan Jones | Comment is free | The Guardian
Quote:
Prince Harry squints like a serious photographer as he points his £729 Fuji X100 camera at a Lesotho herder. The red walled room they are in emphasises the intimacy of the moment, as the youth poses patiently and Harry seeks that perfect, defining instant of truth.

What is wrong with this picture? Where to start? It is a specious salmagundi of complacent assumptions and frightening arrogance.

The same can be said about W&K but that doesn't stop the criticism. Harry is viewed as untouchable in some royal circles. Its just not 'cool' to question him

as if making assumptions about what's in Harry's head is not another example of hokum.

One could better make the point about how the world views Africa and Africans by exploring the response to the current Ebola outbreak. Let's not go there folks - I'm just saying there are other pincushions that could have made the point more effectively.

People see what they want to see and the fact that that guy (whoever he is) got that out of those photo’s says more about him than about Harry.

Well, I agree with "that guy (whoever he is)". It is a staged photo of Harry taking a photo of someone else. It is therefore a photo of Harry; can't really be anything else. It is PR and nothing more. If this had been a genuine attempt at Harry's photographic bent, he would not have been in the photo, the light would not have been on Harry, rather on the subject. I know the organization has done good things, but this photo, IMO, has nothing to do with the charity.

If you focus on that particular photo than yes.. you are right. But there were plenty more photo’s that didn’t solely focus on Harry, but rather Harry and the people he tries to help.

There are other criticisms in the article, not just that one photo.

I found little Karabo very moving. She may not have sight with her eyes, but she sees with her heart- and oh her joy is infectious!
Harry, you rock a purple apron. And you can fly helicopters for the British Army, but not string beads.
Harry said that most of the photos of his family he keeps in his heart. I'm sure that some of the most special are of his mom. Interesting , because while millions of us enjoy remembering her by looking at photos of her in the literal sense, he prefers his memories. Never thought of it, but makes perfect sense. I'm sure she'd be very proud. Harry reminds me of her when he's with children.

Second-
No words. If you have some, you're better than I.

I don't know why but Harry has just a natural charm and you can't help like him (at least me). This is why he is so popular I think... no stifness, he presents himself as he is... And he is so good to relate with children because, I think, he still has a part of childish attitude!

He's definitely a child at heart. A big kid. And that's why we love him!

May be. But his taking up responsibility for people, especially children, in need is a very grown-up, adult thing to do!

Maybe its just me but reading through the article with the pictures of Harry in Lesotho and reading about the pictures taken, I was under the impression that he took some pictures (that were shown) but didn't take all of them. To do that, he would have been focused mainly on photography rather than why he was there. There is also a photograph taken near the bottom of the article where it must have been a board meeting. Harry, at that point, was wearing a tie. All in all, I would guess that Harry's venture into photography was a spontaneous spur of the moment thing and not the itinerary of his day as he left the UK

Regardless of who took the pictures, whether they were staged, posed, photoshopped, cut and pasted or whatnot, Harry is the real deal when you see him with the people. There is a rapport there between them, especially the children, that melts your heart. He brought a little bit of the holiday spirit to Sentebale and that is the kind of holiday party I would have liked to be at.

It seems that some people are even envious of Harry's success and popularity ad try hard to put him in a bad light... failing... It may be just my impression tough

Chris Jackson from Getty Images went on the trip. It's his pictures when Harry are in them.

Is there a picture available of the actual photograph that Harry took? If it's a good close-up portrait of the herdsman then I personally wouldn't have a problem with it and the photo of Harry taking the photo would make more sense.
