This is the second dialogue of the series “Other views. The Middle East in the photographic background of Fr. Ubach” which delves into the influence of the image and photography in the construction of the narratives and perceptions about social, cultural and political realities of the Middle East.

How are conflicts and social movements represented? Has the photojournalism evolved over the years? Which photos can create memories and which ones can’t? Classic photojournalism is evolving and many professionals seek new frontiers and use creative language to explain essential problems of the contemporary world. Is documentary gaining ground? Are there new paths underway?
