This week we sponsored a panel discussion on the future of documentary photography, produced by the photographers of Luceo Images in conjunction with their Altered States gallery exhibition. The panel included photojournalist James Estrin of the New York Times LENS Blog, TIME Magazine Deputy Photo Editor Paul Moakley, director of CLAMPART Brian Paul Clamp, and Bess Greenberg of 25CPW.
The conversation focused heavily on seizing new opportunities as a visual journalist and creating a sustainable living as a photographer. The panelists indicated that there’s no “magic bullet” here. However, they each shared some extremely thought-provoking insights and inspiring words, well worth your time and consideration.
The panel wrapped up without much chance for Q&A – please continue the conversation here.
Is there a future in documentary photography and how can aspiring documentary photographers both follow their passion and earn a living?
