Friday February 23 7pm
Meeting Times: Friday: 7-9 pm
Code: 07WSE02


Course Description

What is the perception of viewers seeing only one side of a conflict covered by a specific photographer? Does being local actually help or hinder you? What are the ethics, pitfalls, and boundaries of choosing one side to photograph? Does ethnicity factor into access? This evening
dialogue will examine the difficulty of interpreting both sides of an emotional story through viewing the work of photojournalists who live and work in conflict areas such as Palestine and Israel.
