BagNews Salon: The Fall of Bin Laden
(Note that this is 02.00 GMT June 6th)
The "Security Room" photo of the White House National Security team
generated days of analysis throughout the internet. The unreleased
photograph of Osama Bin Laden's corpse generated polarizing discussions
over the visual politics of his death. At this BagNews Salon, an expert
panel will analyze images of one of the most anticipated moments in
American international politics over the past decade. How was it
visualized by the government and the media, and what does that coverage
reveal about long building expectations for this event?
The BagNewsSalon<http://www.bagnewsnotes.com/salon/> brings together the eyes and voices of the world’s leading photojournalists, visual academics and other highly-informed observers to analyze select edits of news photographs in a 90 minute on-line discussion format.
