The Future of Picturing the World: Filming and Imaging in a global era

3d June 2009

Can images change the world? If pictures of suffering - poverty, disease, war - have less impact in a global age saturated by visual images of suffering, what is the role of filmmakers and photojournalists? This event will discuss the role and changing practises and ethics of photographers ans film makers faced with so-called 'compassion fatigue'.

Sabine Selchow is a fellow at LSE. Dr. Paul Lowe, is Course Director, MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography, London College of Communication, University of the Arts.

This event is being organised by the LSE Events and Conferences Unit and is a Centre for the Study of Global Governance event, to see their website click here.
