Speaker(s): Adam Broomberg, Oliver Chanarin

Recorded on 21 May 2009 at Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building

Documentary photography is problematic. Without a witness, a victim is alone and de-humanised. We also know that victims are made for, or even by, the camera. In presenting their work produced in Afghanistan, while embedded with the British Army last June, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin attempt to highlight and compensate for these blind spots. In addition to showing The Day Nobody Died, they also present extracts from The Red House, produced in Iraq and Chicago, produced in Israel.
