2012 Digital Photography Certificate recipient and professional photographer Tracy Clark will present her work as a humanitarian photographer in Nepal, Honduras and Haiti.
Clark will present her experiences in the field and the development of her portfolio of work, as well as the importance of understanding what humanitarian aid organizations aim to do, the issues they address, and the people and populations they work with.
Clark will discuss her new book, Life Without Mirrors: A Photographic Journey in Nepal, published in April. The book is a compilation of photographs and thought-provoking questions about her first trip to Nepal and the beginning of her passion for humanitarian photography. Clark traveled with the Pennsylvania United Medical Association (PUMA) to villages in the Lamjung District to run medical clinics and support the needs of communities in the mountain regions.
Her discussion includes the following topics:
- Ways to get connected in humanitarian photography
- Working with non-profits
- Considerations for travel
- Volunteerism vs. earning an income
- How the Certificate Program at UArts helped Clark’s career direction
Event is free and open to the public.
