Imaging Famine

A fascinating and provocative investigation into how stories of famine (particularly in Africa) are brought to us in images. This broad topic is broken down into 20 themes that explore what role “disaster photography” plays how in famine is portrayed today, with video commentary from photographers, journalists, and academics. Imaging Famine means to establish debate about how we look at and understand the suffering of others by presenting historical images of famine alongside current photography. This is an in-depth yet accessible and enlightening research project on the political side-effects of photography.
