The Photography Ethics Centre aims to raise awareness about ethics and promote ethical literacy across the photography industry. Join its founder, Savannah Dodd, for a series of workshops that will explore photography ethics in a variety of contexts.
This online workshop will explore the role of photographs in research. Students will gain the theoretical grounding to understand the way photographs make meaning, experience of critically examining visual language in photographs, and an awareness of the key ethical considerations when approaching photographs in research contexts. The aim is for students who attend this workshop to be able to use photographs responsibly and to interpret them critically. Although the focus of this workshop will be photography, the principles of this workshop will also apply to film and video. Student participation is mandatory. This is the first workshop in a series of three. It is highly recommended to attend all three. The workshops can be individually booked.
