Kunstforum: The Twain - Photography and Social Media
With the explosive use of social media, people from all walks of life have been discussing its impacts; fake news, isolation from real human interaction, and many more. There is however a frequently overlooked problematic area: The impact of social media on photography.
As channels for clicking and sharing have grown exponentially; for the true, artistic or journalistic photographer, this trend is sometimes disturbing. The ability to identify a photogenic moment and then use technology, training, and experience to capture it for perpetuity has been lost among endless millions of spontaneous thumb-tapped images.
Join us for a panel discussion with the experts as they discuss The Twain: Photography and Social Media and raise the curtain to the upcoming Photography Event which is the largest in South Asia: The Indian Photo Festival.
Panel: Aquin Mathews, Joyoti Roy, Kishor Krishnamoorthi
Moderator: Nishat Fatima
