Photojournalists – whether they report on war or traffic accidents closer to home – stand right at the frontline of reporting on violence and tragedy. At the London Photographers’ Branch meeting on Tuesday 26 April 2011 the discussion will be on Dealing With Trauma.

Starting off with a short documentary, “News Media and Trauma”, Gavin Rees from the Dart Centre for Journalism and Trauma will be on hand to discuss what photographers need to know about self-care while working on traumatic  assignments.

Associated Press (AP) photographer Lefteris Pitarakis will be talking about some of the images that have affected him personally and leading a discussion on working through the ethical dilemmas traumatic photographs can present us with.
