This seminar questions the extent to which taking photographs is an ethically neutral act.
In contemporary times, digital cameras within smartphones and other mobile devices makes it easy to continually ‘capture’ experiences indiscriminately. Furthermore, social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram normalise photographing and sharing images of everything from the Grand Canyon and other natural wonders to the foods we eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
The decision to ‘take a photo’ is no longer a meditated event, but a habitual reflex.
Is the constant ‘snapping’ and sharing of ourselves, our environment, and others really ethically neutral, or does it subtly affect the way in which we engage with others, and indeed with the way we think of and relate to ourselves?
