Ten per cent of all the photographs ever taken have been taken in the last twelve months. In an age defined by ever increasing numbers of photographic images in art and visual culture, how do we value the contemporary power and importance of photography? Is there a necessary divide between photography as an art form and photography as an agent for social change and mass communication?

Art historian and critic Michael Fried, Photography Critic for The Financial Times Francis Hodgson, sustainability expert Leo Johnson and artist John Riddy debate the distinctive authority of photography within and beyond the gallery walls.

In association with Prix Pictet.
