This panel, hosted by Monocle’s Andrew Tuck and Chiara Rimella, explores the power of an image. In a world where we are overwhelmed by pictures and everyone with a phone is snapping and posting, why does the right photo still matter? Monocle has just published ‘The Monocle Book of Photography’, which celebrates the great shooters who have appeared in the magazine. Two of them are Rena Effendi and Zed Nelson, who join Andrew and Chiara.
