Photographing Politics: Campaigns, Protests, Demonstrations

Date Oct 04, 2016
Type Panel

The American public is divided—over economic policy, social policy, foreign policy, race, privacy and national security, and much more. The two-party system is polarized, various movements are afoot, and the American public seems content with its inability to come together in civil dialogue. The current presidential campaign is rife with anger and discord.

Capturing this contentious landscape poses numerous challenges to the photojournalist. In this panel discussion, a group of ICP alumni share the strategies they employ to capture this discord.
