The symposium brings together experts in photojournalism and visual culture to explore issues of ethics, accuracy, bias, entertainment vs. shock value, community standards, new technologies, using images as a way to promote activism, and more.

Speakers include Whitney Latorre, former director of Visuals and Immersive Experiences at National Geographic Magazine; Lauren Walsh, director of the Gallatin Photojournalism Lab at New York University and director of Lost Rolls America National Archive; and Ami Vitale, National Geographic photographer and founder of Vital Impacts. There will be additional sessions featuring a variety of regional photographers and experts on visual storytelling.
