The B&H Event Space (420 9th Ave., Manhattan)
New York photographers Ashok Sinha (www.ashoksinha.com) and Geoff Green (www.geoffgreen.com) will share their past work and discuss documentary photography techniques and storytelling through pictures. Topics such as gaining access, photographing people, working with interpreters, ethics and workflow will be covered.
They will also discuss their involvement in The cARTwheel Initiative – a collective of artists that aim to bring photography, visual art and music to children living in the aftermath of war and disaster. Their inaugural trip is to northern Sri Lanka where a 30 year civil war recently ended.
