BagNewsSalon: Since Katrina with Mario Tama
Since Hurricane Katrina, Getty photographer Mario Tama has produced compelling documentary images of life in New Orleans. Three-and-a-half years after the storm, we invite you to this BAGnewsSalon where we will discuss how Mario’s images look to us, one president and a major financial crisis later.
In addition to Mario Tama, discussants include professors Loret Steinberg, RIT and Nathan Stormer, U. of Maine ; lawyer and historian Michael Steinberg; photojournalists Alan Chin, Tim Fadek, Aric Mayer and Yana Paskova; photographer/publisher Michael Itkoff (Daylight Magazine); BNN publisher Michael Shaw; and BAGnewsSalon producer Ida Benedetto. The discussion will be moderated by Cara Finnegan (University of Illinois).
We will be accepting moderated questions and comments from the readership in the last half-hour.
