Join the UBC School of Journal's Asper public talk with award-winning photojournalist Farah Nosh. For two decades, Canadian photographer Farah Nosh has focused on impactful visual storytelling. Nosh launched her career as a photo-journalist in Saddam Hussein’s Iraq and spent 10 years in and out of conflict zones, retreating to her sanctuary projects in Haida Gwaii. Known for its quiet intimacy, Nosh’s work comes back to the root of what empowers her visual narratives - empathy. She aspires to reveal a shared humanity and stir compassion. Nosh will share the successes and risks of an empathy-based practice, addressing the obstacles to compassion that she sees growing today.
