Prof. Christopher Pinney’s TfC Annual Public Lecture is entitled:

Photography and the Transformation of Culture

Was photography in India simply a a void, waiting to be filled by pre- 
exisiting cultural and historical practice? Or was it disruptive,  
throwing up new opportunities, prophesying new social formations, and  
focusing anxieties about the new visibility of formerly secluded  
spaces and events? And what does the study of a global technical  
practice such as photography tell us about how we might conceptualise

roughly equal creatures. Weariness is the shortest path to equality  
and fraternity — and liberty is finally added by sleep." (Nietzsche)
