Mimi Mollaca hosts a discussion at the Royal Photographic Society with Lorenzo Vitturi, Aron Mörel, Dr Lucy Soutter, Marisa Bellani, Tim Clark. In a world flooded with images we need photographers more than ever not just as image-makers, but as intelligent interpreters of the world. This talk explores some of the strategies contemporary photographers are exploring to challenge traditional modes of photography. Operating as researchers, curators, artists, archivists, activists and cultural translators, photographers are proposing new ways to make and shape meaning.
