The exhibition features images drawn from that project; 12 selected by the photographer, and 12 selected by the model, Ingrid.

The Ethics of Photographic Practice

Who gets to speak for or about others with photographs?

The ethical issues (awareness, intent, consent etc.)  provoked by this question have implications for anyone who does photographic work with people – academic, domestic,  street,  documentary, commercial, journalistic, portraiture, travel and so on. Phillip Joy and David Neilsen will initiate our discussion of these issues through brief overviews of the ethical considerations of their photographic work with people in academic and artistic contexts.

This promises to be a lively evening. Hope you’ll join us.

Phillip Joy is a photographic artist and PhD student in Human Nutrition at Dalhousie University.

David Neilsen is a musical sound artist and Research Master of Arts graduate of Mount Saint Vincent University.

Exhibition: April 6 – April 30, 2017
Opening Reception: Thursday, April 6, 6-8pm
Artist’s Talk: Sunday, April 16th, 2pm

As Roxanne describes the exhibit:

“In this new series of work I have been responding to media representations of people and places.

With this body of work I am asking the viewer to consider the ordinary world that surrounds them. To do this I am presenting a figure, to stand-in for the viewer. She inhabits rooms and places that are ordinary. The audience upon viewing this quiet reality may find that upon consideration the ordinary that they inhabit is extraordinary.

There are stories here. Among them a quiet story of a life lived in private”.
