The Story Behind the Story: Borderlands
Join photographers Tomas van Houtryve and Louie Palu as they share reflections on their individual reporting projects, the challenges of telling complex stories through images, and sustaining public interest in the systemic issues on which they report. Seating is limited for this free public event organized by the Pulitzer Center in partnership with FotoWeek DC.
Tomas van Houtryve's project, "Borderland: In the Shadow of North Korea" works to examine the virtually impenetrable and mysterious North Korea from the borders that surround it. Louie Palu uses his camera to look at the U.S.–Mexico border and tenuous relations on both sides in his project, "Drawing the Line: The U.S.- Mexico Border." Both photographers transcend the idea of borders as physical objects, showing the people whose lives are directly affected and impacted by the presence of some of the world's most volatile borders.
This talk will be held at the FotoNOMA gallery, a space set up in conjunction with FotoWeek DC. Those who attend the event also will have the opportunity to see the "Borderlands" exhibition, comprised of work by van Houtryve and Palu.
