Exhibition Name: Three Photographic Stories Three Photographic Stories
Introduction of photographers and works:
Eddie Kash, a photojournalist, filmmaker, and educator, is dedicated to documenting the social and political issues of this era. His works have a keen perspective and are closely related to the current theme. Eddie Kash will present three series of works in this exhibition, “The Lost Generation in Syria”, “Religious Conflict in Northern Nigeria” and “Widow Island in Nicaragua”.
Ed Kashi is a photojournalist, filmmaker and educator dedicated to documenting the social and political issues that define our times. A sensitive eye and an intimate relationship to his subjects are signatures of his work. For this exhibition I’ve selected work from three recent projects -‘SYRIA’S LOST GENERATION”RELIGIOUS CONFLICT, NORTHERN NIGERIA”ISLAND OF WIDOWS, NICARAGUA’.
My images focus on human nature and our world. I firmly believe that images can change people’s thinking. I also believe that the work of news photographers and documentary photographers can have a positive impact on the world. People are willing to let photographers walk into their lives. This kind of opportunity is precious, and it is also an important guarantee for photographers to complete their creations. Their open attitude made me realize that the facts must be told and their lives must be respected.
I take on issues that stir my passions about the state of humanity and our world, and I deeply believe in the power of still images
to change people’s minds. I’m driven by this fact; that the work of photojournalists and documentary photographers can have a
positive impact on the world. The access people give to their lives is precious as well as imperative for this important work to get
done. Their openness brings with it a tremendous sense of responsibility to tell the truth but to also honor their stories.”
