The Soul of the Camera: An Evening with David duChemin
Saturday 29th December, 5pm – 7pm
Join Canadian photographer and best-selling author David duChemin for an evening’s discussion about the role of the photographer in picture-making, and how understanding that role can make us better craftsmen and artists.
David creates powerful images that convey the hope and dignity of children, the vulnerable and the oppressed for the international NGO community. When creating the art he so passionately shares, David strives to capture the beauty of the natural world. David’s travel has taken him through winters in Russia and Mongolia, a summer on the Amazon, spending time among nomads in the Indian, Himalayan and remote Northern Kenya. He’s done assignment work in Ecuador, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Ethiopia, Malawi, DRC, Rwanda, Uganda, Bangladesh, among others, and pursued personal work in places like Iceland, Antarctica, Tunisia, Cuba, Vietnam, Kenya, and Italy. Drawing on a previous career in comedy, David is a dynamic and engaging itinerant presenter and educator. A driven artist, creative professional, entrepreneur and life-long adventurer, David educates and inspires through stunning visuals and hilarious travel stories, and insights, from a life spent outside and abroad.
David will be talking about his career, his successes and struggles throughout his career. While the camera matters, it is the photographers themselves - their vision, creativity, and the willingness to interpret what the eyes see - that makes photographs what they are.
David duChemin is a world & humanitarian assignment photographer, best-selling author, and international workshop leader whose adventurous life fuels his fire to create and share.
