The Images of War” is an immersion into the complex world of the war photographer, a courageous observer of human conflicts. This event explores the delicate balance between the duty to bear witness and respect for ethics. Through the lens of photographers, we explore the power of images in communicating cruel truths and eliciting empathy. We will analyze the ethics behind choosing to share such images, their impact on society, and the responsibility of the media in interpreting them. An opportunity to understand the fundamental and complex role of those who visually capture conflict, offering insights into our perceptions of war.
