WHERE IS PRESS PHOTOGRAPHY HEADED?
International seminar of Budapest Metropolitan University as part of the World Press Photo 2022 exhibition
Can press photography continue to serve as an eyewitness?
How can photography preserve its relevance in the age of virtuality?
Learn about the challenges of reporting and photojournalism from renowned professionals at the newest Meetup of Budapest Metropolitan University.
What is it about?
The world today is facing new problems and dilemmas. These are challenges for an entirely new generation, who have a whole range of visual tools at their disposal. This is a generation that often lives in virtual reality – it is no wonder that post-production is now the hottest trend in photography.
It is particularly interesting to look at the current state of photojournalism: we live in an age where thanks to our smartphones and social media, everyone can feel like a photographer, a photojournalist, a fine art photographer.
This seminar on the burning issues affecting the industry of photojournalism is not only for creators, as these questions affect all readers and viewers of media, images and videos. The event will provide unique information and experience for both press professionals, art and communication students, or anyone interested in photography.
Get immersed in the stories of international experts, illustrated with projected images, without nostalgia, and join the discussion generated between the speakers and the audience.
The event will be joined by two world-class, internationally distinguished speakers from ‘West’ and ‘East’ in addition to the renowned Hungarian professionals and artists invited to our roundtable discussion.
