Exploring the Photo Bill of Rights

Panel proposal accepted for the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) annual conference, August 2022.

Abstract: In 2020, a group of individuals representing several photographic organizations drafted a new code of photographic ethics, the Photo Bill of Rights. Its goals were to promote a safer, more inclusive industry but many in the photographic community, particularly photojournalism, took exception to some of the language. In particular, an optional section that suggested obtaining consent from those being photographed brought ire from several photojournalists. This panel brings together scholars and photojournalists to discuss the deeper implications, both positive and negative, to the industry from this document and the subsequent response.
