That's why I'm speaking in terms of
"useful to the reader" - and date,
place and photographer are the basic expected information about a
photo that a reader would expect to see.
Were that really true in all cases we would expect to see things
listed that way on other encyclopedias and even news sites. Yet thats
often not the case.
Certantly there are many cases where the date and place are very
relevant. In many of those cases we find that information in the
captions already. The photographer is usually pretty irrelevant to
someone simply learning about a subject, but is important for other
purposes so it should be easily and obviously available. It isn't
right now, and that should be fixed.
