Along with numerous awards, including Second Prize Contemporary Issues Singles in the 2011 World Press Photo Contest, UNICEF’s Photo of the Year  2010, a Prix Pictet 2010 Commission and honors from Pictures of the Year International, Communication Arts and American Photography, Kashi’s images have been published and exhibited worldwide. Additionally, his editorial assignments and personal projects have generated seven books, including the recent Curse of the Black Gold: 50 Years of Oil in the Niger Delta and THREE. Kashi’s latest book Photojournalisms, is a compilation of journal writings to his wife, done over a nearly 20-year period, from various locations around the world.

In 2002, Kashi and his wife, writer / filmmaker Julie Winokur, founded Talking Eyes Media.  The non-profit company has produced numerous short films and multimedia pieces that explore significant social issues.  The first project resulted in a book and traveling exhibition on uninsured Americans called, Denied: The Crisis of America’s Uninsured.

Ed was also leading his Near and Far 4-Day Workshop at DCP from October 26-October 29.
