1F, Associate Mission Building (169 Yuanmingyuan Road, Shanghai)
Platform: Education
  • DJ Clark


    Lecturer: DJ Clark

    Head of World Press Photo’s Project in Africa


    This talk discusses how photographic illustrations of Africa play a role in constructing knowledge of the continent for mainstream international audiences.


    It undertakes this in terms of the “Developed World” and the “Developing World” in order to challenge the assumptions of superiority and inferiority associated with traditional representations of “First World/Third World” or “developed/underdeveloped”.


    Central to the discussion is the notion of a specific photographic point of view based on the author’s background as a UK photographer who has undertaken extensive work in the Developing World.
