Benjamin Lowy, Shahidul Alam and Moshe Rosenzveig join 702 ABC Sydney Evenings presenter Dominic Knight on the Conversation Couch for a guided discussion on photojournalism and social media.

Benjamin Lowy is award winning photographer based in New York City. Lowy has been an outspoken advocate for, and a leading practitioner in, phone photography in professional photojournalism. An iPhone image from his coverage of Hurricane Sandy was recently selected as a cover of Time magazine.

In this presentation Benjamin will explore his use of smartphones in photojournalism and participants will gain insights into this award winning photographer’s technique and fascinating biography.

He will later be joined for a panel discussion by fellow World Press Photo award-winner writer, curator and activist, Shahidul Alam and Head On Photo Festival Director Moshe Rosenzveig. Alam has long-used social media platforms to give a voice to underprivileged and largely voiceless groups. Both are in town with exhibitions and talks as part of Head On Photo Festival 2013.

Canapés and wine will be served after the presentation (4pm)
Participants are encouraged to stay and mingle!
