DCP Speaker Series: Ed Kashi

Ed Kashi returns to DCP for an artist talk and book signing for his new book Abandoned Moments.

This event was held on Friday, August 5.

For forty years, celebrated photojournalist Ed Kashi has delivered the world’s stories through images that both imply, as well as directly show, humanistic challenges and joys. Abandoned Moments: A Love Letter to Photography (Kehrer Verlag, March 2022) is a window into Kashi’s unique voice and craft, and presents glimpses of ordinary life, as well as extraordinary events, struggles, and triumphs.

We are proud and excited to have Ed back at DCP for a lecture, book signing, gallery exhibition, and workshop. His work is extraordinary, and his engaging presentation highlights the common humanity between his own approach to photography, his subjects, and the viewers of his work.

The images selected for his book and exhibition span the decades of his work and were taken around the world. Kashi speaks to the ‘abandoned moment’ theme cued by the title, stating that “Abandoned moments demonstrate a different kind of precision. They are shaped by serendipity and instinct, rather than objectivity and intellect. They are free to be less controlled but for that very reason they may be more certain and more certainly true…”
