Mr. Haseo Hasegawa for personal reasons cannot attend the program.
We are excited to be able to present a unique video message and a presentation from Mstyslav Chernov, Photo Journalist from Ukraine and President of the Ukrainian Professional photographers association, including his story how he escaped from Mariupol. The presentation, realized for WPC by Jan Pohribny in cooperation with Olga Kovalova, will include some photographs from Ukraine before the war and images made in recent weeks from the war torn country. The message of these images is absolutely clear, and showcases the importance and value of the documentary photography today. We are happy to present something which is high standard of photojournalism and unedited. It gives also another perspective to WPC quality, and we are sure that some of these images will be in the top ten of World Press Photo soon.
In addition, at the end of the program, our speakers will be happy to make a special lighting demo at the photo set of the studio.
The other speakers, Antonio Barrella, Joao Carlos and Ben Shirk are confirmed.
The speakers’ program will be coordinated by Don MacGregor, WPC Committee member.
So there is a lot of further reasons to register…there are only 15 places available.
