Panel Discussion - Photography: Construction of Truth


  • The Mac 10 Exchange Street Belfast, Northern Ireland, BT1 2NJ United Kingdom (map)

PANEL DISCUSSION

Recognising that photography has played a major role in our collective view of what is true and what is false, the panel will be discussing how the camera has been used to construct (and de-construct) our understanding.

In approaching this we will recognize the international relevance of this issue and its pertinence to Northern Ireland. Within the context of this discussion, the panel will consider the festivals exhibition concepts and how photography has been edited and misrepresented to portray the truth and the untruthful.

Sean O’Hagan - Photography Writer & Critic - The Guardian & the Observer (London, U.K.)

Michael Famighetti - Editor – Aperture Magazine (New York, U.S.A)
