Intimacy and the Art of Visual Storytelling: An Evening with Photojournalist Ed Kashi
Please note: There will be another Stanford event inside of CEMEX Auditorium from 5:00 pm - 6:45 pm. To accommodate the transition in between events, the auditorium doors will open at 7:15 pm for the Ed Kashi program. We thank you for your understanding.
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.
