Picturing the World Speaker Series

Carnegie Hall 404

Join us for a talk by photojournalist Eman Mohammed titled "The Moment Before I Make a Historic Image and the Images that Don't Make History." In her talk, Eman will discuss war photojournalism and the back stories of spot news. What can photo essays and long-form visual journalism show us about the world beyond single news photos? Or how might we learn about different histories by turning our focus as viewers beyond historic images?

Eman Mohammed is possibly the only female Palestinian photojournalist documenting the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. Her work has shifted from covering the shelling of Gaza in 2008 in hard news style to long-term projects more focused on capturing women's experiences in Palestine. She has been named a 2014 TEDFellow.
