Event Description

The development of the internet, social media and digital technology presents new challenges and opportunities for photographers who take war as their subject.  This talk examines these technological developments and their impact on war photography of some of the most recent conflicts, and will feature some of IWM’s photographic acquisitions of twentieth-first century conflict

Head Curator Hilary Roberts will be joined in this talk by special guest British Army photographer Steve Blake, who will show some of his most recent work from Afghanistan.
