RSIS – School of Humanities, NTU Seminar by Ms Barbara Davidson, Guggenheim Fellow 2019
Leap of Faith: A Photojournalist’s Transition
The Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Relief Programme in RSIS and the Gender and Diversity Cluster in the School of Humanities jointly present a seminar by three-time Pulitzer Prize and Emmy award-winning photojournalist, Ms Barbara Davidson. Ms Davidson is best known for her work on victims of gang violence in Los Angeles, and her humanitarian approach to covering women’s issue around the world.
Barbara mastered her story-telling approach through multiple assignments over two decades and across 55 countries covering war, humanitarian crises and the human condition, in particular for women and children, for the Los Angeles Times, the Dallas Morning News and the Washington Times.
During this lecture, Barbara will discuss her career as a veteran newspaper staff photographer and how she made the leap to the world of freelance photojournalism documenting the plight of victims in humanitarian crises such as conflicts and natural disasters.
