Session Abstract

The roundtable explores the connection between popular culture and large-scale investments in water, land, and infrastructures. Inspired by different photography and visual research projects on water and development in Ethiopia, the roundtable will discuss the use of photo in building, legitimising or challenging narratives about development, nature and technology. Photographers and researchers from Ethiopia, Egypt, UK and Italy will engage in a post-colonial discussion on representation, ethics of photojournalism, aesthetics and power. They will share and compare their gazes to reflect on how different artistic canons might be used to elicit emotions about water, to represent different stories and to give voices to specific interests.
