PHO701: Week 5 Power and Responsibilities

I have learned to use the triangle approach in assessing aspects of photography, such as power and impact.

Also, I’ve become aware of objectification of the subject and amongst other gazes, the male gaze. I’ve taken on board aspects relating to minors amongst other vulnerable groups, including people of disability. I’ve taken on board how the photographic supply chain runs through various parties from photographer/sponsor to end-users along with an element of repurposing of the original intent.

I also read (or re-read) the AOP Publication Beyond the Lens, which in a sense although a realistic portrayal of photographic practice does invite a slightly cynical view of the economics of the profession. Remuneration is very much in decline for the individual photographer.
