Description

What kind of photo provokes people to donate money to aid agencies – and how do agencies ensure that images preserve their subjects’ dignity? What kinds of constraints influence the photos we choose? And has social media created new opportunities for self-representation, or just reinforced the use of outdated visual clichés?

 

Join photographers, donors, researchers, critics and NGO sector communications professionals to discuss these issues, highlight great (and not so great) examples of development photography, and share best practice.
