Open Photojournalism Education Network
May 25th 15.00 GMT 16.00 BST
This live webinar from the LOOK 2011 festival in Liverpool will explore how photographers have dealt with alternative ways to represent warfare that do not focus on 'bang bang' and the frontline. it coincides with the group exhibition at LOOK 2011, ‘Collatoral Damage’. which explores images associated with atrocity that do not depict the actual act of violence or the victim itself, but rather depicts the circumstances around which such acts occurred. Images of atrocity are deeply problematic, in that they potentially create a tension between form and content and are often accused of re-victimisation, aesthetisation of suffering, compassion fatigue and exploitation. A group show, curated by Paul Lowe and Harry Hardie, with images by Simon Norfolk, Tim Hetherington, Zijah Gafic, Paul Lowe, Edmund Clark, Lisa Barnard, Ashley Gilbertson, Adam Broomberg and Olivier Chanarin, Brett Van Ort, Mishka Henner.
