What you will learn in this course.

This September, we turn our attention to #WomenInTheIndustry, celebrating the success of female creatives who are working to change the way we see the world.

In association with Hasselblad, join world-renowned press photographer, and Hasselblad shooter Jillian Edelstein for a live interview about her career, including her work in Johannesburg and her experience photographing Nelson Mandela. Between 1996 and 2002 Jillian returned to South Africa frequently to document the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Her award winning book Truth and Lies, shot on large format, was published by Granta, the New Press and Mail and Guardian in 2002, and she is currently working on several photographic projects including a film documentary about the screenwriter Norman Wexler.

During this session, Jillian will talk us through some of her favourite images from her career, sharing some of the stories behind them and how they have helped change the world for the better.
