Across a wide range of battlegrounds worldwide, conflict photographers face daunting perils to capture indelible images. From dodging gunfire to facing psychological and cyber dangers, these journalists are steadfast in bringing you the truth. At a moment when legitimate journalism is repeatedly attacked by leaders around the globe, acknowledging the import of this work is crucial.
Learn about their experiences at this discussion moderated by Craig Allen, an international photo editor at The New York Times. The speakers include an award-winning New York Times photographer; Bangladeshi photographer and activist Shahidul Alam, who was jailed after criticizing the Bangladeshi government and its abusive treatment of student protestors, and whose work will be exhibited at the Rubin Museum of Art; and Lauren Walsh, a professor at The New School, whose new book, “Conversations on Conflict Photography,” focuses on coverage of war and humanitarian crises.
This event is sponsored by the Office of Civic Engagement and Social Justice at Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts, and the Schools of Public Engagement at The New School in collaboration with The New York Times.Buy tickets/get more info now
