Award-winning photojournalist, Tomřs Ayuso, who has documented the plight of Honduran migrants and the ravages on the country caused by the drug war will give this talk and share images from his work.
Tomřs' talk will cover his work documenting the experiences of people in motion, leaving his native Honduras, traveling through Mexico, and their struggles at the US Southern Border. He was awarded the James Foley Prize for his "exceptional reporting" on the conflict. Tomřs is also an Open Society (Soros Foundation) Fellow, a National Geographic Society (USA) Explorer Fellow, and a World Press Global Photo Talent award winner.
The event is hosted by the Centre for Art and Politics. The talk and some of Tomřs' photographs will be recorded and archived within the Centre and become a resource for the public.
Tomřs will also be offering two masterclasses, both open to students from across the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. The first will focus on working with people in motion and the second, with an emphasis for Art History and Film Studies students, will focus on the aesthetics of documentary photography. For more information contact Jeffrey Murer in the School of IR on firstname.lastname@example.org.
For the month of November until the winter graduation, 40 of Tomřs' photographs will be on display in the Arts Faculty Building.
