Internationally renowned photographers Rita Leistner (Looking for Marshal McLuhan in Afghanistan) and Mike Kamber (writer and photographer for The New York Times, among many other outlets) sit down with curator and Newsweek photo editor Jamie Wellford. As practitioners whose work ranges from journalism to fine art, the three will discuss everything from the practicalities to ethics of capturing images in the midst of armed conflict – as well as the stories these images give rise to.

 

 

This event will be live blogged by Peter Lozinski, a journalism student at Ryerson University in Toronto. His work has appeared on Canada.com, the Canadian Press wire, and in The Grid.
