IMAGE GENERATED BY ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE. Prompt: An award winning documentary photograph of a lone soldier and the victim of a war crime in the style of a VII photographer (created via Midjourney on 6 June 2023). Image created for a discussion on A.I.

The production of synthetic media by AI models is rapidly and radically transforming the visual landscape. Generative AI can produce increasingly realistic photographs and videos, and this capacity is expanding exponentially.

Given the danger synthetic visual media poses to the power of images in reliably documenting events and issues, this session will address this question: what can independent practitioners and media organizations do to ensure authenticated visual content retains a central place in visual journalism?

This event takes place at The Alexandra Boulat Campus in Arles, France, on Wednesday July 3rd, 2024, starting at 15:00 CET (11:00 EDT). You can attend in-person, or online. Please register via the link on this page to receive the login information for the online streaming. Entrance is free.
