Fissure as a theme was chosen by the Festival this year as a way to capture the growing international photography series, projects that focus on nuclear weapons + power, whilst recognising New Zealand's unique role in the global geo political landscape as a nuclear free nation. As we broadened the idea out from this Fissure of ideology - to arm or not, to build powers stations or not, the genesis of the Festival's exploration of visual photographic imagery, series and projects that fit this idea of cracking, breaking down, meltdown and rifts even in the commercial world started to take shape.
The panel will endeavour to bring their expertise, views and ideas to life in this sizzling debate on photography.
