A Timely Talk On ‘The Shifting Focus Of Photojournalism In The Digital Age’

6973205983_17a17fd5e9_o

by Ken Tsui | On now at the Museum of Vancouver, ‘Vancouver in the Seventies’ is a photo exhibit that digs deep through the Vancouver Sun’s archives to illustrate the city’s formative years in over 400 images. In a topsy-turvy political landscape, the way we see the world is changing as rapidly as our Instagram feeds and the immediacy of photojournalism has never been more important in keeping us focused in an increasingly bizarre world.

As part of the exhibit, the MOV presents ‘I Witness: The Shifting Focus of Photojournalism in the Digital Age’, the first instalment of 2017 in the Museum of Vancouver’s brainy and inspiring talk series called ‘Happy Hour’. For ‘I Witness’, guest speakers and photographers Rebecca Blisset, Richard Lam and John Lehman share their unique perspectives on photojournalism’s authenticity, power and future in an social media-obsessed world. As people take it to the streets for what is warming up to be a year of protest, ‘I Witness’ will keep you up-to-date on the important role photojournalism will play in documenting these empowered voices and uncertain times.
