The Representation of War - From Capa to Instagram
a panel discussion
What can we learn of the shift in how journalists accessed the battlefront in previous wars compared to the embed process in Iraq and Afghanistan, and fairly open access during the Arab Spring? And from the enduring power of the still image in the video age? How has technology dramatically changed the way news organizations get photos from the field and distribute them globally? What does the rise of local journalists reporting mean, vs high cost of foreigners and low media budgets? How should we react to ISIS and its use of images? And how does this impact the role, public perception and ethos of War Photographers, agencies and media?
