The Power of Photography in Social Movements

A presentation in the ECCE Speakers Series

Noon on Wednesday, July 16, in Brookens Auditorium

Larry Livingston, assistant professor of Social Work, will speak about the power that photographs can have to spur people to action on social issues.

Examples will be drawn from the works of Ansel Adams (environmentalism), Lewis Hine (child labor), Dorethea Lange (poverty), Gordon Parks (civil rights), and Jacob Riis (housing standards).

Participants will be challenged to think about the causes that concern them, as well as what images might convey that concern to others.

This event is free and open to the public.
