This workshop explores the work of Ed Kashi ’79, a renowned photojournalist, filmmaker, speaker and educator who has been making images and telling stories for 40 years.

Kashi, an alumnus of the Newhouse School, is dedicated to documenting the social and political issues that define our times, and he brings a sensitive eye, intimacy and compassion to his subjects. Kashi has created projects for National Geographic, The New Yorker and MSNBC, and his work is in the collections of major institutions including the International Center of Photography, George Eastman House and the Library of Congress. 

A selection of Kashi’s photographs, drawn from his projects “Aging in America: The Years Ahead,” “Curse of the Black Gold: 50 Years of Oil in the Niger Delta” and “In the Hot Zones: Investigating Chronic Kidney Disease of Non-traditional Causes,” will be featured in a pop-up exhibition, “Ed Kashi: Advocacy Journalism,” on view Oct. 24-30.  

The workshop will provide Syracuse University faculty and graduate students with key information and pedagogical tools that will help them to teach with Kashi’s work, and with related objects in the museum’s collection.  

Kashi will co-teach the workshop, which includes:  

  • An introduction to Kashi’s career and practice 
  • Visual literacy exercises focused on Kashi’s photographs as well as related photographs from the museum’s collection 
  • Practicum exploring how participants can use photography in their own scholarship and teaching 

The workshop has a capacity of 12 people.
