But do these images give us a better understanding of the situation in a given place? Can we properly interpret the incoming messages, or are they just a source of confusion? How does the pre-eminence of the image affect our ability to perceive text and textual messages? And what is the meaning of traditional international reportage in a world that is permanently interconnected?
We will ask these questions of Czech and Spanish photojournalists, representatives of the Czech media, and NGOs that are active in war zones.
The following guests have agreed to participate in the panel discussion (the list of the guests will be updated as appropriate):
Miguel Ángel Sánchez – a Spanish photographer based in Istanbul
Jan Šibík – a Czech photographer known for his photos from war zones
Martin Ehl - Chief-Foreign Editor at Hospodářské noviny
Michal Kubal – Chief International Correspondent for Czech TV
Markéta Kutilová - Journalist, actively involved in People in Need organization, civic association Femisphera and Pontopolis.
The panel discussion is being held within the scope of the public programme to the UPFRONT: War photojournalists exhibition.
