Environmental Photography Workshop: Visualizing Issues

Saturday, November 20, 2010 - 04:30pm to 05:30pm EST (GMT -0500)

From Ullens Center for Contemporary Art:

UCCA welcomes two-time Pulitzer Center Grant recipient Sean Gallagher, who has spent the past two years traveling across China documenting the country's fight against desertification and disappearing wetlands.

Having the ability to visually communicate overarching themes, theories and ideas is essential to helping the public understand sometimes complex and seemingly disjointed issues.

Gallagher's workshop will focus on the art and science of effectively photographing large-scale environmental issues and conveying eco-stories through imagery. He will also provide participants with useful advice about identifying themes and stories, and offer tips about the process of eco-filmmaking, from shooting to distribution.

The free workshop will be given in English with Chinese translation, at the UCCA La Suite in Beijing, China, on November 20th. Th event is hosted by the Ullens Center, in partnership with Greening the Beige.
