Details

As conflict reporters, we tend to gravitate towards the worst moments of trauma in human history, often capturing victims at their most vulnerable points. Even with permission, this can hinder someone’s healing journey as they process what has happened.

Elisa Iannacone is a cinematographer, photographer, author and advocate for equality and human rights. She has worked on six continents producing work for clients including Newsweek, National Geographic, Vice and the BBC. Covering the Rabaa massacre in Cairo and domestic violence in refugee camps in Iraq, her work examines the human condition during crises and the aftermath of trauma. Iannacone discusses her journey from conflict reporter to finding new ways to tell important stories. She talks about the intimacy and connection that underpins her process and her work to express trauma through the camera in a way that can empower survivors of abuse by involving them in the creative process. Can art be a form of justice and a means for healing?
