As the world's most prolific and democratic visual medium, photography is all around us. It informs and persuades, delights and sometimes horrifies us. Photographs have always communicated the realities of the world, but have also been about helping the photographer communicate their personal interests about a place, a situation, or their fellow human beings. This conference will bring together ideas about the complex atmospheres of climate, equity, and community and will examine how photographers, teachers and students can examine, embrace, editorialize and understand them. We are excited to announce that the 2015 Conference Programming has been finalized - check out the schedule for the full line-up of speakers. Proposals for the 2015 conference are no longer being accepted.
