Rita Leistner at the University of Toronto!

On Tuesday, November 6 2012 at the University of Toronto, Rita Leistner will be giving a presentation for VicXposure’s first workshop of the year.

Leistner, a renowned photojournalist who has shot in many situations ranging from homeless communities in Vancouver, aboriginal peoples in Canada, and shooting embedded and unembedded in Iraq, will be discussing field production during her latest trip to Israel, issues of access and “getting close” with subjects, and the technical challenges of working in the field.

Leistner recently worked with playwright Marie Clements on the Talon edition of The Edward Curtis Project: A Modern Picture Story.
