Thomas Dworzak
September 18, Sunday
Magnum Photos: Meeting Photographers of the Legendary Agency15:00

Limited places available, prior registration at is required

Being involved in combat operations in areas of worldwide military conflict is all part of a day’s work for Thomas Dworzak, one of the youngest and most promising photo journalists of his generation. He spent most of the 1990s in the former Soviet Union, reporting on the wars in Chechnya; and more recently, he has produced a photo-essay on the Orange Revolution in the Ukraine. Never shying away from danger, he has taken photographs of riots in Yugoslavia, Kosovo, Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Haiti and the after-effects of Hurricane Katrina in the United States. Dworzak has won an incredible number of prizes and awards, including the Picture of the Year International Award (2007), World Press Photo (the Grand Prix in Spot News Story) (2001), the Prix Bayeux (2001) and the Prix Terre d’Images Scoop d’Angers (2001).

Besides photography, Dworzak creates video essays, some of which he will present at this event, including The Taliban and M*A*S*H. Dworzak will accompany this screening with a presentation of professional tips and hints, such as how to take an effective photo in the heart of active military conflict, how to record incredible elements of life during the war and how to retain an objective point of view for news reportage.
