HUMAN RIGHTS

DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY AND FILM

 

–       AS WESTENERS, TO WHAT EXTENT DO WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DOCUMENT SITUATIONS? TO WHAT EXTENT IS IT HELPFUL?

 

–       HOW ARE WE BENEFFITING FROM THIS?

 

–       HOW ARE THEY BENEFITTING FROM THIS? WHAT’S IN IT FOR THEM?

 

–       INVASIVE? HELPFUL? HARMFUL?

 

(Ethics, different cultures have different beliefs, media)
