Visiting Vietnam & Japan as photojournalist, tourist and foreigner by Margo Reed
Margo Reed, a Berks county resident and Philadelphia-based photojournalist was confident in photographing unfamiliar people until she experienced being the outsider instead of the staff photographer with a press pass. In her talk at Berks Photographic Society, Margo will share her experiences as a foreign photographer, journalist, and artist. She will discuss how these and other outside influences can affect one’s work as a photographer and suggest some strategies to overcome them. She will present ideas and open dialogue about photographic ethics in foreign places, while sharing her experience creating a documentary photography book in Japan to guide the conversation. Margo has traveled to Japan, Vietnam, and California in the past sixth months, and will have pictures to share from each trip. Her emphasis is on photographing people and what happens when shooting along with language and cultural barriers. She invites people to come on March 19 with questions and experiences to share from their own travels. Ever think of joining a camera club? Give the Berks Photographic society a look!
