MIchael Salu to host Granta Salon on the ethics of Photojournalism
Photojournalists bear witness at the front line of human experience. But when does photojournalism become exploitative? Granta’s February art salon will open with a presentation of Julie, a photo essay by Darcy Padilla featured in Granta 122: Betrayal and a dramatic reading of an extract of Padilla’s journal about her work. Julie is a devastating portrait of a woman living with Aids and struggling with motherhood after a lifetime of abuse and addiction.
