[su_spacer]Matron of Morbidity[/su_spacer]On October 18, 9am-6pm, Magnum Foundation is holding its second annual Photography, Expanded Symposium, a full day event at Parsons The New School for Design presenting innovative documentary storytelling and emerging ideas in digital media and journalism on social justice issues.See the work of mediamakers, designers and communications strategists, gain new critical insights and connect with potential collaborators in order to respond the changing demands of the field.
[su_spacer]Matron of Morbidity[/su_spacer]See below for a sample of feature projects:
+ #Dysturb is a community endeavoring to break beyond traditional publishing outlets to make photojournalism accessible to a wider audience and relay the testimonies of the people on the ground that trust them to do so. Taking it to the streets, #Dysturb sticks human-scale news pictures in public venues.
+ The Syria Campaign is a growing movement demanding more from global leaders in government, institutions, and the media. Attention-grabbing and headline-driving stunts push for safety, fair resource allocation, cultural preservation and peace for Syrians, while holding decision makers accountable for the impact their actions have on the ground.
+ Points of View is an ongoing interactive web documentary comprised of auto-ethnographic video footage shot by Palestinians working with B’Tselem’s Camera Distribution Project. The video trails offer intimate and site-situated looks at life under the Israeli occupation.
