Notes from the Field: An Interview with Fred Ritchin

This article considers the various possibilities for citizenship that can be imagined given our highly visual world. An interview with Fred Ritchin, New York University professor and author of After Photography, explores this issue through discussing how the circulation and dissemination of visual imagery may open avenues for dialogue, participation, communication, and understanding. Ritchin draws upon his extensive experience as an editor, curator, and educator to expand on several ideas: the circulation of images of suffering, the boundary between photography and art, and ethical responses engendered as part of a global citizenry.
