Imaging Famine and other events
Born Aid 20. The Commission on Africa. Live 8. Make Poverty History. The G8 Summit in Gleneagles. We are witnessing renewed debate about global poverty, disasters and development, especially in Africa. Coming two decades after the Ethiopian famine of the mid-1980's the time is ripe for a reconsideration of the power and purpose of disaster pictures given the way the images of the Ethiopian famine spawned the original Band Aid/Live Aid phenomenon. http://www.imaging-famine.org/ Imaging Famine is one of several intriguing events I'll be involved with in September 2005. The event in New York is not public, so I've left out the details, but I will be there in case anyone wants to meet up. 5th and 6th September: Imaging Famine Conference The Newsroom. Guardian.
