Images of Disaster: A Case Study in Puerto Rico

Panel with Tamara Cedré and Pablo Delano

Saturday, November 02 - 1:00PM to 1:45PM
de Saisset Museum Auditorium

As photographers and academics whose work centers around the locus of Puerto Rico, our panel talk engages the depiction of disaster in vulnerable communities and posits larger questions about photography's ideological currency. Besides hailing from the same island, the common thread within our work is the use of counter-archives and an ethnographic impulse to record the stories left out of books and headlines. Mining these histories, we will present our own research while generating a discussion of best practices— beginning with a case study in Puerto Rico but, opening up the conversation to other effected areas.
