Witness: War Photographers On the Battle Ground

Ever since Roger Fenton made the first photographs of war in Crimea in 1855, photographers have risked their lives to make images of what they have witnessed in the heat of battle.  Those photographs have brought wars home to millions of people and influenced public opinion and public policy. 

Come hear acclaimed photojournalist Chris Johns, former Editor-in-Chief of National Geographic, share essential insights on conflict photography, from 1855 to the 2022 invasion of Ukraine, and give the inside story on pivotal images that have changed our world.
