Ed Kashi is a photojournalist and filmmaker dedicated to documenting the social and political issues that define our times. In the digital age, we are deluged with visual information and an overabundance of images. What distinguishes Kashi’s work is the intimacy and complexity of his storytelling. This lecture will span a range of stories, issues, and approaches that represents the frontiers of visual storytelling, from smartphone photography to short documentary films. Kashi will discuss his work with Syrian refugees and the traumatic impact of oil in the Niger Delta, as well as stories closer to home about immigration and aging.
