News Activists carry posters as they shout slogans during a protest march against the gangrape and murder of a teenager, in India. The Indian politician has apologised after she said women invite rape.

She came under criticism from members of her own party who distanced themselves from her remarks

Obituary: Derrick Knight

Derrick Knight, photographer: born 18 September 1919; married (two sons); died 20 February 1994.

Letter: Camera deception with an air of truth

Sir: In her obituary for Robert Doisneau (2 April) Val Williams notes The Late Show's 'modish' interest in him, but succumbs to the equally modish view that 'Photojournalism, with all its claims for veracity, is as much a construct as a well-crafted piece of fiction.' This is just not true and dangerously undermines photojournalism's valuable social role.

ART / Exhibitions: Life, the universe and everything: The Hulton Deutsch Collection contains 15 million photographs. Out of it the Barbican has made the first unmissable show of 1994

IT WILL be a long time before we see another photography exhibition as good as 'All Human Life'. Occupying both floors of the Barbican Gallery, it is so crammed with interest that visitors should allow a couple of hours to absorb its message. And it's not only large. The images, some 400 of them in all, are both vivid and suggestive. They tell us something that fine art doesn't: other people's experience of the world is uniquely captured by photography.

Man of the moment: Felix H Man took almost all of the pictures in the first issue of Picture Post. Jane Richards remembers one of the original photojournalists

FELIX H MAN was one of the first photojournalists. He remains one of the greatest. He began working as a professional photographer in the 1920s when newspaper photography was in its infancy and within a few years had helped to define the genre.

Elevating the common man: His portraits glorify the worker. But his critics think too much glory has accrued to Salgado himself

SEBASTIAO SALGADO, the Brazilian photographer, is the most famous photojournalist working today. This means that his photographs are exhibited in private galleries and public museums around the world, that he can command enormous fees from magazines and newspapers, that he receives massive sponsorship ( pounds 1m from Kodak for his most recent six-year project), sells prints for between pounds 800 and pounds 1,800 each, and is deemed worthy of major articles in magazines such as Rolling Stone and the New Yorker.

Letter: No crime exposing neo-Nazis

PAUL REYNOLDS of Anti- Fascist Action (Letters, 31 October) criticises Neal Ascherson's words which accompanied Leo Regan's photographs in the Review, which are published by us under the title Public Enemies.

Letter: Thanks to Fellini

Sir: I have just read in your newspaper the news about the death of Federico Fellini. Many of us photographers working the streets of the world owe him our name: 'paparazzi photographers'. As we go out tonight many of us will dedicate to him our best pictures.

TELEVISION / Graduates of the school of hard knocks

TEN YEARS ago Jeff Perks made a film about 'knockers', East End lads who scraped a thin living for themselves, and a fatter one for their organisers, by selling rubbish door to door. It was a portrait, in the middle of the Eighties boom, of the grubbier fringes of enterprise; whatever else you might think about them, the film suggested, at least these young men were getting on their bikes (though, in this case, the bike happened to be a rusty transit van packed with household goods). The tone was affectionately complicit - OK, so they exploited people's charitable instincts in order to sell junk (part of the proceeds notionally went to help the mentally disabled) but that's all part of the game, innit?

Obituary: Louis Bondy

Louis Bondy, antiquarian bookseller and local politician: born Berlin 19 June 1910; died 10 June 1993.

Media: Talk of the Trade: Talking pictures

COLIN JACOBSON, picture editor of the Independent Magazine, believes there is a strong cultural bias against photography within British journalism. Many editors do not value photojournalism as an essential part of the journalistic process, Mr Jacobson says. They use photographs because they have to, but believe they have no real meaning without the text.

PHOTOGRAPHY / Night pictures

THIS classic image, taken by Thurston Hopkins in 1953, has resurfaced in an exhibition of Hopkins's night pictures at the Zelda Cheatle Gallery. It was first published in Picture Post, as part of a story by the screenwriter Edgar Wallace, and has a mood, an atmosphere and a quality of light that photographers hanker after to this day.

BOOK REVIEW / Photojournalism

Something up there: spectators at an air show, Nevada, 1959. Taken from 'Cornell Capa' (Bullfinch Press), a retrospective of his photojournalism. Where his brother Robert lived (and died) for war pictures, Cornell Capa has ranged more widely and peacefully; the 7000 Ford engineers standing with the car they created is as potent an image of the 1950s as you could wish for.
