Event description
Award-winning photographer Maggie Steber will present her work: An Intimate Journey

About this Event

Guggenheim Fellow and 2019 Pulitzer Prize finalist, Maggie Steber, will present works from her long carrier, from documenting wars to photographing her own family.

‘Photography has the great responsibility to document history but has also been labeled as voyeuristic, especially in this era of smartphones. We see people's lives but what do we really know about them? Where are the surprises? The joys? The heartbreaks? Where is the personal?’

Maggie Steber will take us on a journey where photography becomes an intimate act of documentation, connection and self-discovery.

After the presentation, moderator Brian Storm, founder and executive director of MediaStorm, will follow up with an interview and a Q&A session with the audience. Light refreshments included.
