"Poverty Tourism: Have you taken the tour?"
Poverty Tourism: Have you taken the tour?
1)Have you ever heard the term poverty tourism? What do you think it means?
2)What are the benefits of "poverty" tourism? For the poor? For those seeing poverty?
3)Have you ever photographed poverty?
4)What are the effects of taking photos of those in poverty?
5) How does a photograph of "poverty" serve its subject? Those viewing it? The photographer? Are there any implications involved?
Please join this discussion led by participants in the 2008 CPGC summer internship program in Nicaragua.
