Exploring conflict photography in Parga

Reem, 13, a young Syrian refugee at the Al Za’atri camp in Jordan. Ed Kashi’s photographic essay on Syrian refugees was shot in 2013.

From young, displaced Syrian refugees living in Iraq and Jordan to sugarcane workers suffering from a rare kidney disease in Nicaragua, Ed Kashi’s work documents the human condition in a constantly evolving world.

When not capturing history in the making, the award-winning photojournalist likes to dedicate some of his time to working with photography students and lovers of the medium. Coming up is a workshop in the town of Parga, northwestern Greece, where “New Frontiers in the Art of Visual Storytelling” will be taking place at the seaside Villa Rossa hotel on July 8-11.

An award-winning professional, Kashi was born in 1957 and is a member of VII, an agency specializing in conflict photography. His work has been published in National Geographic, the Washington Post, the New York Times and Time magazine, among other publications.

Kashi’s most recent missions include photographic essays on Northern Nigeria – the land of “black gold,” poverty and more recently terror group Boko Haram – and the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in the US, while previous projects include Iraqi Kurdistan, the US’s expanding elderly population (“Aging in America: The Years Ahead”), Jewish settlers in the West Bank and the Protestant community in Northern Ireland.

While in Parga, Kashi is also scheduled to deliver a public lecture titled “The Life of the Hybrid Visual Storyteller,” in which he is expected to share experiences and talk about the importance of keeping up to date with means of communication, such as photography, video, mobile photography and social media. The lecture takes place at the Villa Rossa on Friday, July 11, starting at 9 p.m. and will entail a small admission fee.

Selecting the right subject, documenting the story in a singular style and bringing the resulting images to a broad audience in the hope of making an impact on society are among the topics that Kashi is expected to touch upon in Parga.
