Special Event: Lunch Conversation & Artist Talk

As part of DUCIS' Globalization and The Artist Series, David Degner will show photographs that discuss practical methods for safely gathering information in a quickly evolving conflict situation, pulling from his experience working in the middle of the revolutions of Egypt, Libya, Bahrain, Syria, and the latest conflict in Gaza.

Please RSVP here.

David Degner arrived in Egypt six months before the Revolution started and has been there ever since. He lives one block from Tahrir square, was one of the first journalists to enter Libya during their Revolution, was one of only two photojournalists in Bahrain when the Human Rights Commission report was released, and he has also managed to get 2 visas to government controlled Syria. He specializes in humanizing stories. David strongly believes in being a journalist as well as a photographer. David has been published in most major publications from The New York Times to The Guardian, TIME to Vice, Wall Street Journal to AdBusters.

This event is made possible through the support of MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts, Duke University Center for Documentary Studies, Duke University Center for International Studies, Duke University Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies.
