"If your pictures aren't good enough, you aren't close enough"
Why do we photograph conflicts, wars and revolutions? What are the motivations to do so? What are their real-world impacts?
Since its conception, photography has been used to communicate both truth and mistruths about conflicts around the world. Often, photographic images will influence how we view a war. Used to document, provoke or elicit a reaction from the viewer, it is undeniably a powerful tool in capturing conflict.
Join our panelists as they display, discuss and contextualise six thought-provoking images from pioneers and the future of conflict photography.
This event is hosted in partnership with Messums, a leading multi-purpose gallery and arts centre which offers artists and collectors a unique environment to experience and engage with.
