The camera has been used for many reasons: as means of capturing and documenting, for purposes of history, truths, and memory; as representational, to encode and decode meaning through image; and as the symbolic, embodying structures and power relations between the photographer and their subjects.

This session aims to unpack ways of seeing and contextualise acts of violence borne from an image.
