Oh boo hoo.  So he's put to one side.  The rest of those kids are going to die in seven days!

What, is going to climb to the top of the risers with his wheelchair?  The kid looks happy,  mommy.
 
2013-06-17 05:17:46 PM
This gave me the giggle fits, but not in the assholy way one is accustomed to with Fark. These jerks were just so blatant about it. There was a big empty space at the upper left where they could have moved the bottom right kids. One of those things that's so sad you either have to laugh or cry so I just got the giggle fits at the abbrasiveness and audasity of these failures of humanity.
 
2013-06-17 05:17:56 PM
You mean he's not the stereotypical center of attention and fawning in the class photo? We must make the disabled kid the most popular now!

At a minimum, have the teacher stand next to/behind the wheelchair kid, rather than as far away from him as physically possible.
 
2013-06-17 05:19:39 PM
No, it wasn't malicious - just an overly-anal artist type composing the shot, trying to make the group symmetrical with the risers.  They should have ignored the risers and moved the group over to include the chair, just as suggested.
 
2013-06-17 05:19:43 PM
I'm thinking he stands out a lot more for having a face than where he was put in the picture....just my opinion though

If they had just moved the kids over to the end of the bench, it would have been fine, but the photog wanted to center the seats.  The guy's rocket chair is pushed up against the bleachers as much as possible.

I like living in a world where a photographer making a stylistic arrangement choice somehow bespeaks discrimination on the part of the entire school.

I like even more that a newspaper -- presumably one whose very mission statement is to uncover the truth -- somehow devotes several column inches to an issue that deserves ZERO, and creates its own tempest-in-a-teapot.  One that is sure to attract the attention of lawyers.

I like everything about this article.  Stupidity and wanton greed made Fark what it is today.

Well, I am a photographer who has taken many class photos, and I can tell you this guy needs to find something else to do, if this is the best he could come up with. That photo is just pathetic.
 
2013-06-17 05:26:44 PM
Yes it is a malicious act obviously well planned out before hand with pure evil intent the day the photographer got his license , the photographer should be investigated in all the other pix. he took to see how many children he has shoved to the side.Also all his life savings along w/ all future income should be garnished as punishment.

Should have put the teacher in a wheelchair on the other side for symmetry.

Okay, the outrage is just a little bit too much over this. I was expecting him to be waaaay over, not merely one foot away from the other kids.

Just thinking in writing, but wouldn't it have made more sense to have kids stand behind him/aside of him, then have a row of kids on their knees, and then a row of kids sitting? Then he can be included in the picture without looking like a blotch.
 
2013-06-17 05:29:07 PM
The photographer is Canadian.  Give him a break.

But, I would also say that the kid is smiling, and looks happy.  He probably was, until his parents got all biatchy about this.

This is some how news? I'm glad nothing else happened on the planet today.
 
2013-06-17 05:30:50 PM
You know what? Although I'm all for ADA, this is just a little too much. The kid is part of a class; not the reason for the existence of the class. As such, he is merely one of 23 children in the class. As I don't see any voids in the riser in which to fit his hoverround, putting him on the side opposite the teacher should be just fine for balancing the photo. The real issue: the photog should have spread the kids out so as to not make him appear sequestered. But, when you're herding a class of ADD tricycle motors, just getting them to stay still for the 4 minutes it takes to arrange them all is a feat in its own right.

The kids looks happy and well-adjusted. Somebody must be doing something right.

It's terrible composition, yes. Pictures tell stories and the story here is not great, to say the least.

Moving the teacher to the same spot but on the right side would have mostly fixed it or moving the kids over. I'm guessing that the photog had a strict formula to follow, which didn't allow for addressing this sort of thing.

The teacher could have been standing behind the wheelchair.  The children could have been shifted to one side on the bleachers toward the wheelchair child instead of the big gap.  The wheelchair could have been front and center (like the photoshop) with no children in the first row right behind him. A couple of kids could have been standing around the chair if the teacher "belongs" on the other side for some reason and the phototag wanted balance.
All in all it is a very sad picture, and somehow the fact that the kid in the wheelchair looks so damn happy makes it even sadder.
It's not special treatment to be included in your class picture with everyone else.

Actually, all the other precious snowflakes 'rents should be upset.  First thing you notice in this picture is "wheels", he stands out.  All the other snowflakes just blend in.  The other 'rents should be outraged, outraged I tell you.  Why isn't my flake more pronounced on this ever so important picture?
 
2013-06-17 05:35:28 PM
Yes, they should definitely have put him just to the left or right of center, on one of the top two bleachers, so he didn't stand out.

I agree with her that it is poor composition. Why not move the teacher into the gap between the normals and the freakshow-whose-very-presence-must-cause-a-disruption-of-the-learning- environment? But she (or more likely, the idiot "journalist") is wrong about space. GoKart Mozart there is flush up against the footings of the bleachers. He can't be rammed any closer.

But more to the point...tough shiat, mom. By all rights your kid should have been eaten by a leopard by now. In almost any culture, he would have been "tree-felled" by now, if nothing else.

2013-06-17 05:42:17 PM
Oh come on, they're making trouble where there is none!

What do you mean the kid is being separated from the rest by empty space? It's a bench! Would they rather have risked his safety and put him on top of a bench just to get him closer to the others?

I don't believe they put him there because they're picking on him or they don't treat him like a human being. They simply put him there because there's nowhere else to put him. Class photos are really like that, you just line up kids, put a teacher somewhere, and snap the shot.

I bet there are lots of unofficial pictures where everyone isn't forced to sit down where the wheelchair kid can be seen closer with his buddies.

There's no problem here and there's nobody to blame. I'm pretty sure if you ask the wheelchair kid himself if there's anything wrong, he's say "No, do you want me to be treated like a rock star and be carried during class picture just for being bound to a wheelchair?"

I'm not a photographer but I can't imagine how someone who gets paid to take these kinds of pictures wouldn't consider it a part of the quality being paid for is that all the kids fit together as a group.   I think a good photographer would be able to compose this picture in such a way that at first glance you wouldn't even realize one of the kids was in a wheelchair.  This picture looks like he or she did the exact opposite, let's go out of our way to set this kid aside.

The school deserves part of the blame since it's a school picture, so it's part of their responsibility to have someone approve of, or reject, the work done.

Seriously, I don't see this as bullying or whatever... but it's totally dumbass on the part of the teacher and the photographer. I mean, how hard would it have been to transition the kid to the bench so he could be with his classmates? Even if not, just center him and kind of have some kids down low and on the bench around him and it'd just mask the chair and he'd blend right in.

elffster - Ok, just out of curiosity, what would you have done?

I'd say MyNameIsMofuga and cederpark pretty much nailed it. It is true that there is some heavy complaining, but these people paid for a class photo and this is just not good. Would you let it go if you sent your car for a paint job and the guy didn't bother to tape up the windows and used Dollar General Silver Spray Paint to do the job? I don't think its too much to expect a little integrity from someone being touted as a 'professional', do you?

No farking kidding. She's a public elementary school teacher, not a pediatric RN.

Secondly, he's not "off to the side," his chair is inches from the end of the bench. Thirdly, this woefully underpaid photographer likely had dozens of these pics to take that day and didn't want to reposition the rest of the kids and have to re-set up the shot.

Special Needs teachers and assistants take kids out of chairs all the time to get them to bathrooms, sometimes for necessary cleaning of equipment, and other things. I know we're all lawsuit wary, but taking kids out of wheelchairs is something that happens hundreds of times a day in schools that accommodate kids with disabilities. If she wasn't comfortable/able to do that, she should have inquired with whoever handles the special-ed stuff (I'd wager this class is not generally a special needs class).

As far as composition goes, why didn't he arrange the kids in a Fibonacci packing pattern from shortest to tallest, and then include the teacher at apex with the wheelchair kid such that the angle of the long axis subtended from the camera is equal to the secant of the orthogonal semi-major axis incident angle? That way, the shot has axial symmetry and no topographic bias.

PROBLEM SOLVED!

Photographers HATE to change their setup, even for a wheelchair kid.  It's a pain in the ass for the smart ones, and since we're gonna assume this particular photographer isn't part of that group, it'd be impossible.  He/she would be having an OCD meltdown in their brains the entire time that shot was taking place.  But that said, absolutely no way that shot should've been taken.

Three things should've happened:
1. Move the bleachers to a side, I don't care which.
2. Balance the kids so it actually makes sense with the wheelchair kid.
3. Put the teacher behind said wheelchair kid.  (I know, in the Grand Exalted Dogmatic Bible of Grade School Photography she belongs in the back left, but this is a farking exception.)

I know this is not the avenue said photographer envisioned themselves going down when they decided to get a degree in photography, but it's not that farking hard to envision how to fix it.  The result just shows why said photographer is not doing glamour shots in Paris like in their wet dreams.

\not a professional photographer, but I know a few

Couldn't they have just scooched the other kids over closer to him? Or Photoshop, as others have suggested.

I mean, the "heartbroken" mother should probably take a chill pill, but still. This is a problem that didn't need to be a problem. A decent photographer could have taken care of it.

2013-06-17 06:28:57 PM

HAMMERTOE: You know what? Although I'm all for ADA, this is just a little too much. The kid is part of a class; not the reason for the existence of the class. As such, he is merely one of 23 children in the class. As I don't see any voids in the riser in which to fit his hoverround, putting him on the side opposite the teacher should be just fine for balancing the photo. The real issue: the photog should have spread the kids out so as to not make him appear sequestered. But, when you're herding a class of ADD tricycle motors, just getting them to stay still for the 4 minutes it takes to arrange them all is a feat in its own right.

The kids looks happy and well-adjusted. Somebody must be doing something right.


Howabout just not anally having to have the kids sitting on the risers? That would have solved the whole problem right there. One row of kids sitting on the floor, one sitting on chairs, one standing. Wheelchair boy could stay right where he's at, and teacher at the other side if photog's artistic sensibilities won't let him move her. Ta-da.
 
2013-06-17 06:30:50 PM

jst3p: When he showed up late for the picture the photographer asked him why he was tardy.


I am still outraged by the photo, and it's sad how the kid is leaning over to be closer to his classmates, but bravo.
 
2013-06-17 06:31:26 PM
Come on, this is very proactive and prepares the poor boy for working in a large company where they put you to one side in group photos the better to photoshop out your cane or wheelchair so it won't be known the company has any cripples - leaving you leaning awkwardly on nothing or hanging midair - but at least not an apparent cripple.

That's a good point too.  The kid's mother has probably drilled every last sentence of that kid's 504 into the teacher's head by now, you'd think she would've spotted this as an actual issue.  Then again, she probably has about 15 ADHD cases in her class that she was trying to get to sit right at the time.  Either way, all the things stated above are true.  Moving the seats to accommodate the wheelchair would've broken the photographer's OCD-riddled mind.

At a minimum, have the teacher stand next to/behind the wheelchair kid, rather than as far away from him as physically possible.

She probably didn't want to cath what ever syndrome/itis or biffida put that poor happy looking kid in the wheelchair to begin with.


or maybe he gets touchy when he's too close to other people and the only way to get a shot was to put him out of arm's reach. He does look quite "enthusastic" in that picture

TrixieDelite: TheRealist II: Yes it is a malicious act obviously well planned out before hand with pure evil intent the day the photographer got his license , the photographer should be investigated in all the other pix. he took to see how many children he has shoved to the side.Also all his life savings along w/ all future income should be garnished as punishment.

Were you trying to hit your word quota for the day, or just peg the Stupid-o-Meter for a few minutes?


Do you honestly think the photographer was licensed? I doubt it... I am familiar with the Photography field and there are a ton of pyramid scheme get-rich-quick type photography setups for people wanting to take class photos. They usually involve hiring idiots that can't get a job at McDonalds or anywhere else and they are hired if they can push a button... that is about the only qualification they need. Actual ability to compose a decent photo or use common sense is completely optional.
 
2013-06-17 07:53:06 PM
Again? Didn't this just happen with some kid in choir?

You know, if this were my child, instead of not showing the photo to him to 'spare his feelings' (I mean, he was there), I'd let him have it and mention nothing. If he had a problem with it (unlikely), I'd act excited about his special placement. Kids pick their vibes from adults -- negative or positive. Not looking at your child's special needs as a negative would help a lot in his feeling more positive about his situation. But what donI know, my kids were fabulously healthy until one was permanently disabled in an accident. (Which, yes, we freaked the fark out for a while and then begin appreciating the positives of her/our situation. The situation will never change, but our attitudes did)

You know, if this were my child, instead of not showing the photo to him to 'spare his feelings' (I mean, he was there), I'd let him have it and mention nothing. If he had a problem with it (unlikely), I'd act excited about his special placement. Kids pick their vibes from adults -- negative or positive. Not looking at your child's special needs as a negative would help a lot in his feeling more positive about his situation. But what donI know, my kids were fabulously healthy until one was permanently disabled in an accident. (Which, yes, we freaked the fark out for a while and then begin appreciating the positives of her/our situation. The situation will never change, but our attitudes did)


Saw a pretty cool episode of Morgan Spurlock's "30 Days" series on this topic. You've lived it, so you don't need to watch it, but it taught me a little about the power of the human spirit.

Dwindle: He would be two feet in front of the kids in the front row, and 6 feet in front of the kids inb the back.
You don't see why that wouldn't work?


That depends on how the lens is set.  Step it down enough and that's fine.  Whether there is enough light there to do that I don't know.  (I'm pretty sure it's an ambient-light shot.)

Uzzah: At a minimum, have the teacher stand next to/behind the wheelchair kid, rather than as far away from him as physically possible.


I know, right? That poor child. The kid didn't even appear to be intellectually disabled. Just looked like he had some degenerative disease, so you know he knew full well what was going on. Bunch of jerks.

Eternal: Soooooo....the whole class...NAY...the whole school, has to change everything for one kid? Needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few....or the ONE.


If I can infuse some snark you would think they would want that kid in the picture more to hide how ugly the rest of those brats were.

zelet: I don't even know the kid and my heart broke a little.


Yeah... it really sucks that he's leaning over trying to get closer to everyone.  That's gonna leave a mark.

jst3p: When he showed up late for the picture the photographer asked him why he was tardy.


Ohh  sheeit you are going to hell

Spawn_of_Cthulhu: The teacher could have been standing behind the wheelchair.  The children could have been shifted to one side on the bleachers toward the wheelchair child instead of the big gap.  The wheelchair could have been front and center (like the photoshop) with no children in the first row right behind him. A couple of kids could have been standing around the chair if the teacher "belongs" on the other side for some reason and the phototag wanted balance.


Or they could all tie ribbons on the chair and spin around it like a may pole while singing songs about diversity and feelings.  Or, just take a picture, which they did.  And not a single kid gave a flap.

Would've preferred the handicapped kid ensconced in a wicker framework, with the kids holding torches while a smiling, benevolent teacher looked on...

ParagonComplex: This gave me the giggle fits, but not in the assholy way one is accustomed to with Fark. These jerks were just so blatant about it. There was a big empty space at the upper left where they could have moved the bottom right kids. One of those things that's so sad you either have to laugh or cry so I just got the giggle fits at the abbrasiveness and audasity of these failures of humanity.


You're about 50 cards short of a full deck, aren't you? You don't put wheelchairs on bleachers dumbass, there are actually safety regulations against it, dumbass.

The kid looks perfectly happy yet the only reason this is even an issue is because someone else had a problem with it.

Does this logic extend to sexual assault against the disabled and children as well?

Dwindle: cwolf20: Walker: Oh for f*cks sake, where did she want them to put him? The wheelchair could only go to the side.

Kids on the front split into two groups. Each side moves down one seat. There is an empty one on each side.  Place wheelchair in front, centered where there's a new empty spot caused by the kids sliding to both ends.  Voila.

He would be two feet in front of the kids in the front row, and 6 feet in front of the kids inb the back.
You don't see why that wouldn't work?


Just as bad, yes.

I don't think there is any way he can sit up on those benches.  The chair he's in looks pretty heavy duty.  I don't know if he can even sit up.  So wtf were people going to do?  In front it would look he was farking towing the others on a parade float.  They maybe could have had the kids stand around him somehow.  Of course he's still in a wheel chair and having the only class picture where everyone stands kind of points that out. 

Like every other PC cause there is only one option that will get all the whiners to shut the fark up.  No class picture for anyone ever again.  So in a few more years we'll be hearing a call for ending school pictures all together.

i want to punch those parents.

I see nothing wrong with the pictue, other than the fact those are the ugliest kids i've ever seen. 99 percent of the class had no faces, but is anyone looking out for them????


noooooooooo

I'm hard pressed to argue after looking at all the damn typos I had. I'd probably be left out of class pictures too.

The picture perfectly captures his station in life. he is apart and different. Always will be. Might as well get used to it.

ohmagerd, we'd have to like, center him up, have the first row of kids on knees, the second third, and fourth rows still sitting on the bench... it'd be a catastrophe! We'd have to move the camera back like three feet (possibly) and actually do some work-like thing. Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo... what kind of monsters would demand such horrible slave-like activities that would consume upwards of 5 minutes of time? Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Harper?!?!?! Who, I ask who, would demand photographers and teachers do such awful things?

You lack anything like creative problem solving skills... may god have mercy on your soul if you ever encounter an actual problem in your life.

To heck with all this... fark modmins, why don't you put this in a shop thread and challenge some farkers with photoninja skills to fix this picture so we can send a copy to the nice story editor people and they can fwd it to mom?  Even in catastropharks, this is something that fark has the ability to fix, or even make more awesome.

The picture has already been re-shot.

Lifetouch agreed that the photographer made a mistake and sent another photographer to the school to take a second class photo.

This time, Miles was taken out of his wheelchair and sat on a bench alongside a caregiver, The Province reported.

But it was a nice idea.
