I have no objection to my work being considered propaganda or documentary 
photography.  I do think that anyone going into the situations that I do 
and photographing with no feeling for the people or their situation would 
come back with some pretty "soul-less" photos.  I'd rather be considered a 
propagandist than soul-less  ;-)
