NYC: DEMOCRATIZATION OF THE IMAGE

  • ICP Museum 250 Bowery New York, NY, 10012 United States

Join us for a discussion about the challenges Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other “democratizing” social media platforms pose to photojournalists’ authority. What defenses are there against this dispersal of cultural authority? Are there strategies available for the professional photojournalists to embrace it? How is the authority of the image itself undergoing transformation?
