    In this lecture, portrait photographer Platon will share his experience photographing an eclectic mix of subjects from cultural icons to politicians, world leaders, change makers, and human rights activists, as well as his award winning portfolios for The New Yorker. He will focus on his recent collaborations with the Human Rights Watch and will discuss highlights from his 'Burmese Defenders' project, his portfolio on the Egyptian Revolution, and the lasting impact of his trip to Russia to photograph civil society in the wake of the 20 year anniversary of the fall of the Soviet Union. Copies of Power will be available for purchase online (for pick up only) and at the lecture, and a book signing with Platon will take place after the lecture.
