GIJC23 – Visual Investigations: Reporting Techniques

Once considered merely a form of fact-checking, forensic visual investigation has rapidly become a critical method of journalistic inquiry, thanks to new technologies, innovative skills, and the global ubiquity of social media imagery. In the chaos of dramatic public events, forensic visual reporting teams can now often answer the question: Who did exactly what, and when? And they’ve answered those questions for incidents from police violence in Hong Kong to a massacre in Sudan. In this panel session, attendees will hear about the latest techniques from three members of The New York Times and Washington Post teams.
