Women in Photography 2018 | Artist Talks I
Izumi Miyazaki & Haley Morris-Cafiero
Sat, 6 Oct 2018, 2pm to 4pm
With the backdrop of collective movements like #MeToo and #TimesUp gaining momentum in the past year, the fourth edition of Objectifs’ Women in Film and Photography takes on the theme of COLLECTIVE POWER. We turn our spotlight to photographers and filmmakers who seek to empower and effect change within and across communities through their work.
