How to Photograph Conflict

When: Monday, December 04 2017 @ 07:00 PM - - 09:00PM
Where: San Josť Peace and Justice Center
48 South 7th Street
San Jose, CA 95112
Description: Classes for Empowering Activists!

Confrontations between two different sides -- whether between left and right, between protesters and police, or between the community and ICE -- need to be photographically documented for media reporting, for community organizing, for legal observation, and as evidence in legal cases.

This class will teach about your rights and responsibilities as a photographic observer. Learn how to position yourself, how to make the most of difficult angles and lighting, about choosing optimal camera settings, when to use video, and when to back off.

"Democracy dies in darkness" (WP)! Justice flourishes in the light of truth!

Sharat G. Lin, PhD is a documentary photographer, writer, and lecturer on social movements and global political economy.
