In Conversation with Photographers Tim Porter & Lori Barra

Thursday, November 14, 2019, from 7–8PM

 

All of the proceeds raised during this event and exhibition will go directly to the families photographed in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Limited edition prints will be available for sale, and additional donations will be gratefully accepted.

 

Join us for a conversation with Marin County photographers Tim Porter and Lori Barra as they discuss their work documenting children and families in Oaxaca, Mexico. In this evening event, Tim and Lori will tell stories and show photography in conjunction with their joint exhibition Our Oaxaca.

 

Inspired by their friend and mentor Mary Ellen Mark, Tim and Lori have spent nearly a decade forming relationships with and photographing families in Oaxaca. Revisiting regularly, nurturing connections, and building trust are integral parts of their photography practice.

 

Joining the conversation is Eric Newton, Innovation Chief at Arizona State University’s Cronkite News. Eric is a long-time editor of California newspapers, including the Oakland Tribune, leading it to a Pulitzer Prize for coverage of the Loma Prieta quake. He also built the Knight Foundation’s journalism philanthropy program, developing more than $300 million in grants. Newton was four times a Pulitzer juror, twice for photography.

 

Tim and Lori’s joint exhibition Our Oaxaca will be on display at The Image Flow, October 18 – December 20, 2019.
