In advance of the talk he will be giving to the Centre on 28th April, 2014, Professor Eamonn Carrabine writes about the power of images in shaping our understanding of harm.
The winners of the Centre for Crime and Justice Studies photographic competition, sponsored by the Wates Foundation, were published in The Independent newspaper. The competition asked for visual answers to the question What is crime? The photographs were also be exhibited at 198 Contemporary Arts and Learning, near Brixton, south London.
The Independent reported:
Peter Francis outlines his approach as having 'been to bring together a range of practitioner and academic researchers whose work can be broadly described under the heading of visual criminology, in order to showcase their creative and academic work, and to highlight the potential of a criminology that embraces the image and visual culture'. Keith Hayward, Cecil Greek and Roy Coleman are among the contributors.
