Attention doctorportal newsletter subscribers,

After December 2018, we will be moving elements from the doctorportal newsletter to MJA InSight newsletter and rebranding it to Insight+. If you’d like to continue to receive a newsletter covering the latest on research and perspectives in the medical industry, please subscribe to the Insight+ newsletter here.

As of January 2019, we will no longer be sending out the doctorportal email newsletter. The final issue of this newsletter will be distributed on 13 December 2018. Articles from this issue will be available to view online until 31 December 2018.

[Perspectives] Moments on the margins

Once upon a time it must have seemed exciting to be photographed, as if you were going to become part of history. Now that everyone with a smartphone can post selfies all day, what does it really mean to make images of someone else? Photographers who are trying to capture marginalised or misunderstood cultures are in an increasingly difficult position if they are not from the same background or culture as their subjects. They risk being accused of objectification in the name of art at best, and exploitation at worst.
