Examining the experience in Egypt of using images to fight for social justice, we talk to Aida El Kashef, co-founder of the Cairo-based, independent media collective Mosireen. Through her experience as an activist and a journalist, we learn about the important role of journalism in creating and affecting change in authoritarian environments. We also speak with Nagieb Khaja, who has been able to report on Islamist movements in Afghanistan and Syria and we dive deep into the world of visualizing conflict through the battle for “truth” as Nagieb narrates for us the importance of images by international journalists.
