Entitled Through the Chaos: Photographing in Uncertain Times, the panel discussion includes Gabriella Demczuk, Zara Katz, Ariel Zambelich and Alice Proujansky Murray in conversation about the effects of the U.S. political situation on their work. The panelists will talk about covering breaking news in thoughtful ways, getting non-Trump stories published, staying focused on long-term work despite news cycle madness, under-reported stories, the spread of totalitarianism worldwide, and making work directly related to the U.S situation now.
