Image Ethics: Professional Photojournalism and Public Commentary in the New Media Environment

Later this week I head to Chicago (actually Evanston) for a talk at this workshop. If you are in the area it should be lively. The initial impetus for this discussion was an "award winning" photo essay on Rochester by Paolo Pellegrin that I've posted on here several times. Thanks to Robert Hariman for organizing the event and inviting me!

This symposium will be devoted to analysis of the images and commentary in an online debate following the exposé at BagNewsNotes of a photograph from Paolo Pellegrin’s award-winning series, “The Crescent.”"
