James Nachtwey: Upcoming talks in NYC & Sydney
In the coming weeks, the acclaimed and uncompromising photojournalist James Nachtwey will be speaking at two forums; one in New York City on May 14, the other in Sydney on June 9.
On Tuesday evening next week at the New York Public Library, Nachtwey along with fellow photojournalist and recipient of a 2009 MacArthur fellowship Genius grant, Lynsey Addario and others will speak on the physical, personal, and political perils involved in pushing the boundaries of discovery and bearing witness.
The night is being hosted by The National Geographic and is in celebration of its 125th anniversary theme, the New Age of Exploration.
Tickets are $25 and can be purchased via the NYPL website HERE.
Nachtwey, who is exhibiting in Sydney during the Reportage Festival, will also speak at the Museum of Contemporary Art on the theme of “Testimony”.
Tickets are not cheap at $85 but it promises to be an eyeopening presentation whether his work is familiar or not. To purchase tickets visit the Vivid Sydney website HERE.
