Alona Pardo, curator at the Barbican Art Gallery, discusses the work and photographic practice of French photographer Philippe Chancel.

Chancel’s images experiment with photography in the complex, shifting and fertile territory where documentary art and journalism intersect. With the discussion focusing on his project Datazone, this talk gives an insight into what images mean in the contemporary world.
