What helps us believe in a photograph in the digital age?
Presented by: Stephen Mayes of VII, Fred Ritchin of Tisch NYU, Santiago Lyon of AP.
Do concepts of 'truth', 'believability' or 'objectivity' have any validity in the digital age?
A group of eminent industry figures will debate the issue in this webinar scheduled to last for 90 minutes
For Fred Ritchin he question is 'How do we come up with a photography that is interpretive but not manipulative, credible and not reconfigured or, in other words, a photography that is subjective and fair?', whilst for Stephen Mayes 'it is always our personal responsibility to understand what we see, and it is a lazy excuse to blame others for our failure to think (noting meanwhile that we can all be fooled from time to time by outright crooks whose objective is to deceive).'
