Photo confab covers conflict Anti-war: John Millar captured this image of protesters calling for a withdrawal of all New Zealand troops from the Vietnam War in 1970. Images of conflict pass into photographers' cameras long before we see them on the printed or digital page. That notion is the topic of this year's Auckland Festival of Photography's Talking Cul- ture Symposium. The free, one-off event will take place on June 4 at Aotea Centre. Talks will raise critical debate around photography's role in responding to conflict from civil unrest to war. Given the amount of con- flict in the world currently it's contemporary and relevant that the festival is delivering a symposium on the work of some great photographers ranging from locals, John Miller and Veronique Cornille to veteran Vietnam shooter and UN ambassador Tim Page,'' festival director Julia Durkin says. Ms Cornille will present her Kiwis in Flanders project at the symposium. It involved photographing the graves and memorials of the 4633 Kiwi soldiers who perished in Flanders in World War One. John Miller and Tim Page will discuss the civil dissent against New Zealand's mili- tary involvement in the Vietnam War. Susan Moller said war is very photogenic','' Mr Page says. It's also an adrenaline rush, exciting, devastating, horrific, heroic and hazard- ous to your health. The images that come from it define our history, possibly none more so than those of the Vietnam conflict which has shaped the honesty of coverage ever since.'' The symposium runs from 10.30am to 4pm at the Aotea Centre in Queen St. Supporting the symposium will be projections of work from Magnum photographers covering Gaza and Burma as well as international photo- journalists' work covering the Bangkok riots, the aftermath of Haiti earthquake and Iraq is Flying in the Aotea Gal- lery. The projections run until June 9 and are free. Visit www.photography festival.org.nz for infor- mation.
