St. Patty’s Day
Mr. Haviv is the recipient of numerous honors, including the Leica Medal of Excellence(1989) and awards from the World Press Photo, Pictures of the Year(2001, 1995, 1991, 1989) Overseas Press Club(2001, 1989). Multiple museums and gallery’s have featured his work including the United Nations, The Louvre, and The Council of Foreign Relations. He has also been published by Fortune, The NY Times Magazine, Time, and Vanity Fair and many more. He has published two critically acclaimed collections of his photography Afghanistan: On the Road to Kabul and Blood and Honey: A Balkan War Journal.
His lecture has enjoyable and insightful to his career. I really like his use of multimedia, combining video in to sideshows to help tell a more powerful story than if it was told with just still images.
I wish everyone would go look at his stories on his website. His website www.ronhaviv.com has a great deal of powerful content from his portfolios to his multimedia work. It is some of the most powerful and stunning work that I have seen in some time. The photojournalist that cover the conflicts of the world do it to make a difference, to change the world and stop violence. They do their part of getting the story out, how many more people must die in places like the Congo and Darfur before we, the rest of the world puts pressure on the powers to be to end it.
