Themes

  • Anti-Black racism
  • Race, Media, Technology

Lynes examines the limits and the powers of images and how we might be held responsible for the vulnerability of members of our community persecuted on the basis of their race, gender, sexuality, or citizenship status.

Lynes asks the question: What do we do about footage and images of police violence in our contemporary moment?

Taking action

  • Humanize and empathize with individuals in images
  • Understand how images can dehumanize
  • Be reflexive of your positionality as a spectator
