Dimitri Beck is the editor-in-chief of the Paris-based photojournalism magazine, Polka. He has been instrumental in setting up new ventures and has created many new projects in order to bring photojournalism to the foreground of the world’s arena.
Dimitri Beck’s lecture will address the professional know-how needed to accurately show and reflect realities through their photography. In today’s world where the tremendous progress of technology is giving priority to the rapidity of the transmission of images rather than the absolute and sacred requirement of their authenticity, the input of photo professionals, their ethics, and rigor are a must.
Dimitri Beck's lecture is entitled, The Veracity of Information in the Photograph: Proof by Image. The lecture will take place on Friday, May 18 at 7 pm and costs $10 for AF members, $15 for non-members.
