Still from Ed Kashi's mmersive video installation "The Enigma Room"

Please join us for a conversation between Ed Kashi and Stephen Mayes where they address what makes a successful photographic career today. The discussion will look at different visual strategies that can serve the needs of the subjects while also building the profile a photographer need to tell their stories. They’ll consider the importance of innovation beyond the recording device and in all areas of business, looking at examples of creative thinking, creative image-making, what to keep and what to forget from what we’ve been taught up to this point, and emphasizing the vital importance of failure as an integral part of successful practice.
