Victor Caivano

Photojournalism, where are we, and where we are going?

After years and years of listening that the end of paper, negatives and to the decisive moment is coming, here we are stubbornly taking pictures. But what comes next? Changes happen faster than we can adapt to them. What do we do while traditional media sinks or transforms? Where do we go? How shall we adapt to the new narratives? During this workshop-seminar Victor and the students will seek together the axioms of modern photojournalism reviewing the works of several current coverages, discussing the meaning of what we do at every step, and discussing the role of the photojournalist in the new complex and rich media scene.
