Ethics and the Public Use of Images of War

A panel discussion on war photography in association with the University of Brighton's Centre for Applied Philosophy, Politics and Ethics.

Do we need to see what war does to people? Ought we have to see it? When does shock give way to lazy acceptance? How do photographers decide what we see and manipulate how we see it? Nobody has asked people permission to display their pain, suffering or mutilated corpses: does that matter?

Join the debate about these and related issues. Speakers include Paul Lowe, Senior Lecturer in Photography at the University of the Arts London, award-winning war photographer Sean Smith, art historian Nicola Clewer and Director of CAPPE, Bob Brecher.
