In October VII Insider will host a three-week series on ethical literacy. When we talk about photography ethics, we are talking about applying concepts like responsibility, power, and dignity to how to take and share photographs.
Savannah Dodd, founder and director of the Photography Ethics Centre, will facilitate the lecture series. Each session will explore what photography ethics is, why photography ethics matters, and how you can apply photography ethics to your practice. We will look at case studies, share experiences, and reflect on the ethical decision-making process of photographers and photo-editors.
Lecture 2: Photography Ethics: Representational Power and Responsibility
In the second session of the photography ethics series, Danielle Villasana will discuss the power we have as image-makers to represent others. Through a discussion of her experience as a photojournalist, Villasana will unpack questions like: How can we think about our representational responsibilities? How can we plan for the impact of our images?
Join us for the second event and stay tuned for the next public lecture, held on October, 17th.
