Event

SEPT 23rd | Diversity Behind The Lens

Panel for insights on why diversity in photography matters — not just for the image, but for the entire industry.

The need for diversity in photography goes beyond the subject — it includes the artist behind the lens. Why? Because photographers and subjects alike affect what we capture and how we tell that story. Who is behind the lens affects the final photograph as much as who or what is in front of the lense.

Join us for a panel of young POC photographers, photojournalists, artists, and creative leaders who will share their experiences in the industry and how their respective backgrounds shaped the work they’ve done. We’ll also discuss the progress and the work that lies ahead in making the photography industry — and every creative medium — more diverse and inclusive.
