Jon Wolf Backs Off

Posted By on Mon, Feb 14, 2011 at 4:58 PM

Late this afternoon, photographer Jon Wolf issued a statement to some media sources regarding his copyright litigation regarding the portrait he took of Jan. 8 shooting victim Christina-Taylor Green:

About a half hour later, at 4:20 p.m., we received this statement from Jon Wolf:

"My actions regarding this matter have been misunderstood and sadly mischaracterized. My intent from the beginning always has been to use the proceeds from my creative work to make a charitable donation in Christina Green's memory. I sought and received the Green family's approval to do so. At no time did I intend to profit personally from this tragedy. As a result of the mischaracterizations in the news coverage and the resulting community outcry, and in the hope of saving the Green family from further association with this matter, I have chosen to halt filing legal action in the hopes of reaching negotiated settlements with those that have used this image. I will turn the proceeds collected to date over to a charity in Christina's honor. I truly and deeply regret the additional distress this matter has placed on the Green family, and I apologize for that." Jon Wolf
