An evening with Reza and Sebastian Junger

This coming Thursday at the Lensic Theater in downtown Santa Fe will be an event to benefit the Photo Teens program in Santa Fe.

The Santa Fe Photographic Workshops partners with National Geographic to bring together the award-winning photojournalist and humanitarian Reza and bestselling writer Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm and Fire, for an evening of spectacular images and compelling conversation.

Reza has devoted his life to bearing witness through his camera to the struggles and hopes of oppressed people around the world. Culled from a 30-year chronicle of his travels to places of conflict, this remarkable photographer will share with the Santa Fe community a selection exquisite images that pair turmoil with hope, joy with despair.

Joining Reza is Sebastian Junger who has traveled the world in his pursuit of covering life on the edge as a photojournalist for such publications as National Geographic, Newsweek and Time. Following an unforgettable journey through war-torn Afghanistan with Reza in the fall of 2000, he has written the introduction to the recently published book, REZA WAR + PEACE, (National Geographic Focal Point) that follows Reza's courageous career to the frontlines of war and areas of unrest. A book signing of REZA WAR + PEACE, with a foreword by Sebastian Junger, will follow the program.

The evening's proceeds will benefit PHOTO TEENS – a program hosted by The Santa Fe Photographic Workshops to inspire Santa Fe High School students in their pursuit of photography.
