An educational workshop designed to encourage participants to think about and discuss issues on the ethics of taking and sharing photos, with a particular focus on images of the injured or deceased and the implications of privacy surrounding these.
Photographs of the scenes of accidents and distressing situations have recently shocked the world, with images of Kobe Bryant’s fatal helicopter crash, Emiliano Sala’s body, and Christian Eriksen’s collapse during the World Cup widely shared. This talk will assess the ethical implications of taking and sharing such images, and how these could be addressed in the future, in a world where smartphones are becoming increasingly commonplace.
