Before we dive into today’s episode we’d just like to add a content warning for this episode for sexual assault.
This week, Familiar Stranger Carolyn sits down with Camille Waring from the University of Westminster. Camille is currently doing her PhD on online representations of sex workers and how photography is being used against marginalized communities.
Throughout this chat, Carolyn dives into the meanings of photography today, what the actual act of taking a photograph means for people and definitions of “Lens Based Violence” and weaponized photography. Eventually, they ask the questions of “what is a photograph” and “who decides what can go on what platforms?”
It was a really interesting conversation with some thought provoking points made. We hope you enjoy it!
Just a note on the audio quality, we’re still conducting some interviews through Zoom so some parts of the interview might be harder to hear than others.
