Ed Kashi: Intimacy and The Art of Visual Storytelling

In the digital age, we are deluged with visual information and an overabundance of images. What distinguishes Ed Kashi’s work is the intimacy and complexity of his storytelling. This lecture will span a range of stories, issues and approaches that represent the frontiers of visual storytelling, from smartphone photography to short documentary films. The lecture will touch on such diverse issues as Syrian refugees and the impact of oil in the Niger Delta, to stories closer to home about immigration and aging.

This talk comes during his The Art of Visual Storytelling Workshop at DCP from March 7-11 where he will be helping participants develop their personal style and approach as it applies to documentary work.
