Professor Eamonn Carrabine, of the University of Essex, will be talking about the power of images in shaping our understanding of harm, suffering and violence.

During his presentation he'll show and talk about a number of images, like this famous 1936 photograph by Arthur Rothstein.

Professor Carrabine will base his talk on his 2012 Radzinowicz Memorial Prize winning article in the British Journal of Criminology article, 'Just Images: Aesthetics, Ethics and Visual Criminology'. 

His article explores sociological ideas and ethical questions posed by visual representations of harm, suffering and violence. Contemporary practitioners, he argues have become increasingly aware that they have certain social responsibilities towards the subjects they photograph, while remaining committed to anthropological exploration, moral commitment and political reform.

Eamonn has written a short preview of what he will be saying here. His full article is available free to download from the British Journal of Criminology website.
