Annette Lang is a German-born anthropologist and linguist based in France. As a single mother of three boys, she learned that it was necessary to have eyes everywhere to avoid constant disasters.
Her passion for studying humans and their behavior as well as curiosity about underlying cultural nuances drew her to street photography.
Annette’s presentation explores what things affect our photography that have nothing to do with technical settings – what is 12 inches behind the camera, as Ansel Adams once said. How do our experiences on the street affect what we see? What cultural filters are used when we see and read a scene? What moral obligations do we have towards the society we live in? What role do we play when we create and publish cultural stories through images?
