This lecture will discuss the work of various photographers who examine subjects from the perspective of an insider and an outsider. What ethical responsibilities are placed on photographers? What happens when observation leads to the transformation of the photographer's beliefs and values? Can an audience's response tell us something about changes in our current social, technological, and political sphere? New paradigm shifts in photography will be examined as well as what role art photography has in what Ariella Azoulay has termed, the "civil contract of photography."
