Lauren Walsh, a leading expert on the visual coverage of conflict and crisis, discusses her two recent books, Through the Lens: The Pandemic and Black Lives Matter and Conversations on Conflict Photography. This event explores the critical role photojournalism plays and the numerous challenges and threats the industry faces, whether covering Ukraine, Covid, volatile protests, or other strife.
Through a series of interviews with top photographers who covered 2020's biggest crises as well as key photo editors who grappled with unprecedented obstacles inside the newsroom, Through the Lens: The Pandemic and Black Lives Matter invites readers to think deeply about events we have only just seen in the news and quite possibly experienced ourselves. Meanwhile, Conversations on Conflict Photography, explores the physical risks, psychological tolls, cyber dangers, and ethical dilemmas in covering war and humanitarian crisis.
