James Wellford, senior international photo editor at Newsweek magazine, just confirmed that he will participate in the PhotoStories debate on Sunday September 11. He is in Holland by invitation of Vrije Academie’s exhibition space GEMAK for the exhibition GENERATION 9/11.
The future of the photographer will be discussed during the PhotoStories closing debate. Is multimedia the (only) way to go? Will photographers find a future in the mix of photos, sound, moving images and interactivity? Lars Boering (Dutch Photographers Federation) will lead the panel discussion. Experts Kadir van Lohuizen (Via PanAm), Bjarke Myrthu (Storyplanet), Caspar Sonnen (IDFA DocLab), James Wellford (Newsweek) and Arno Haijtema (Volkskrant) will all take part.
Free admission. Sunday September 11. 16.00 – 18.00. Minerva Art Academy, Praediniussingel 59, Groningen.
