Photographs acquire their meaning within and from the social sphere. This presentation will explore the photographic and artistic strategies developed by current practitioners in varied contexts of social engagement to enact change. Artists employing strategies of irony, parody, anger, satire, humor, mimicry, collaboration and participation which shocks, subverts, disturbs, interrupts, our viewing pleasure of sublime landscapes and idealized forms, as we explore "the tensions that exist between raising awareness and creating influence, at the same time preserving and maintaining a cultural practice that is grounded in a myriad of personal values, and emotions". (David Buckland, Cape Farewell)
