What’s the power of a photograph? Can a single image affect and change global perceptions? What are the consequences of disseminating stereotypical images?
In the second episode of Global Press Passport, podcast host Kyana Moghadam invites guests to talk about the global images they observe dominating western media and pop culture, and how they’re working to combat stereotypes and influence more complex, global perceptions, through photography.
