About the Talk

On this public talk at the Saint Joseph University award-winning photojournalist Eduardo Leal will share part of his body of work.

Through a personal vision, he will guide us through stories behind the photographs from the Revolution in Venezuela and its fall, the legacy of drug lord Pablo Escobar in Colombia, environmental issues in Argentina and Bolivia, bullfighters in Portugal, among others.

It will be an opportunity to understand the life and the challenges faced by photojournalists to get the picture that we see everyday in newspapers and magazines, showing that photojournalists are witness of our time.
