From Photography to Film – Ron Haviv and Lauren Walsh
Photojournalist Ron Haviv and professor Lauren Walsh explore the dynamics of memory and photography through a discussion of 'Biography of a Photo', their in-progress documentary film. The main “characters” of the film are two photographs taken by Ron Haviv – one from Panama in 1989; one from Bosnia and Herzegovina in 1992. What are the afterlives of images, particularly iconic images and especially in the aftermath of conflict? What do they reveal about how societies move forward beyond trauma, and about how visual media shape our social and political lives, as well as our shared historical memory?
