Photojournalism: Rhetoric & Reality Online Symposium

Join us from 00:00 to 03:00 GMT Sunday May 9, 2010 for a live broadcast from the Head On Festival in Sydney Australia where the Centre for Documentary Practice will present a three-hour live event on photojournalism and documentary practice.

“The finest photographers produce images that ought to achieve more than a gut reaction but help us make sense of events, great and small” – John Pilger

As a discipline, Photojournalism purports to be concerned with a social justice agenda, yet often it simply perpetuates stereotypes, presenting people and issues as singularly dimensional. Presented by the Centre for Documentary Practice, this seminar will focus on the distance between the rhetoric and reality of journalism today.

The event will feature three exemplary storytellers – Angela Blakely (Australia), Shahidul Alam (Bangladesh) and Brenda Ann Kenneally (USA). The session will be introduced and chaired by David Lloyd from the Centre for Documentary Practice.

The 3 hour event will be held from 00:00 to 03:00 GMT. That’s:
Sydney: 10:00am – 1:00pm (to be part of live audience in Sydney visit Head On)
Bangkok: 7:00am -10:00am
Dhaka: 6:00am – 9:00am
London: 1:00am – 4:00am
New York 8:00pm-11:00pm (Saturday May 8)
Los Angeles: 5:00pm-8:00pm (Saturday May 8)

No registration is necessary, there will be a link from this page on the day, but if you are not on our mailing list sign-up here.
