ASMP Oregon Presents: National Geographic Photographer Randy Olson

When: Thursday, November 20, 2014
Time: 6:30pm – 8:00pm

Social Documentary Photography: How to Make Your Audience care about Complex Issues

Documentary photographer Randy Olsons 30+ National Geographic projects have taken him to almost every continent and have had him cover subjects from ITURI FOREST PYGMIES TO CHINA'S "COMFORT CLASS." Join us for an intimate evening with Randy as he discusses how to gain access and inject intimacy into your imagery.

Randy began his career as a newspaper photographer and received an Alicia Patterson Foundation Fellowship to support a seven-year project documenting a family with AIDS, and a first place Robert F. Kennedy Award for his story on problems with Section 8 housing. He was also awarded the Nikon Sabbatical grant and a grant from the National Archives to save the Pictures of the Year collection.

Olson was the Magazine Photographer of the Year in the Pictures of the Year International (POYi) competition, and was also awarded POYi's Newspaper Photographer of the Year - one of only two photographers to win in both media in the largest photojournalism contest operating continuously since World War II.

For the last 10 years Olson has concentrated on population issues, resource issues and disappearing cultures. One of the most powerful aspects of looking at these three assignment areas is that we are experiencing a huge loss of human diversity as people transition from rural to urban, and as growing populations need more resources. Some isolated, rural population groups (like Pygmies) are disappearing as quickly as Randy photographs them.
