"Where Are the Photos of People Dying of COVID?" | Amanpour and Company



It is often said that a picture is worth a thousand words. But during the pandemic, many of the images of those suffering and dying are withheld from public view. Instead, our screens have been saturated by statistics and press briefings – all important to keep us informed, but Sarah Lewis argues we need to see the victims to better understand the human impact of this devastating virus. She joins Walter Isaacson to explain the vital role of artists and photojournalists during a crisis like this.

Originally aired on May 14, 2020.
