How do you ensure your images bear witness to history, serve as catalysts for change and observe a place in time?

Are you a witness or an agent of change? Do causes such as environmentalism and war photography suffer because of the ubiquity of images around these topics?

This Head On Conversation will discuss the role of effective witness in the changing the world.
