Culture Chronversations #6 – Photography, blurring faces and Magnum Photos

By Jonah Ocuto, Multimedia Producer

Welcome to Culture Chronversations! On this show, we ask broad questions about topics we aren’t usually able to touch on in our standard reporting. To give you an idea of who works at the Chronicle and who we are, we’re rotating guests each week to ensure everyone gets a chance to speak. But, note that we’re recording through zoom, so keep that in mind while you’re listening in. On today’s episode we’ll dive into photojournalistic ethics, whether or not to blur the faces of protesters and recent controversy with Magnum Photos. You’re watching Culture Chronversations.
