What ethical issues surround the making and circulation of images today?

This day-long series of discussions and activities explores the complex ethical questions related to photography and other forms of contemporary image-making. The event includes a visit to the exhibition Don McCullin, analysis of leading theorists, and presentations by guest speakers. The discussion will focus on two particular themes: the ethical dimensions of conflict photography, and the ethics of social documentary practices. It will also address wider issues including questions of representation, consent, censorship and guilt. Please note this event will discuss images and issues that may cause distress. Participants are encouraged to join the conversation in a supportive, safe and inclusive environment.
