This fall, the Alexia Foundation is starting an important new initiative to further the ability of photojournalists to help bring important issues to the forefront.
The Alexia Foundation is creating the first of many one-day workshops entitled, Photography: Agent for Change. With a variety of world-renowned experts, including grantees Ami Vitale and Tim Matsui, National Geographic’s Whitney Johnson, Getty Images’ Aidan Sullivan, ICP’s Fred Ritchin and many others, will help attendees understand how to make the greatest possible impact with their work. This day of immersive learning will empower many more photographers and stir even more vital social change.
