Award-winning documentary photographer Nina Berman will share powerful images from her travels across the United States as part of the Charles Arnold Lecture Series, sponsored by Rochester Institute of Technology’s School of Photographic Arts and Sciences.
The presentation is at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 7, in the Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science auditorium on the RIT campus. The event is free and open to the public.
Berman will give a lecture and presentation called “Homeland.” She has been around the world, but spends the majority of her time traveling the United States trying to understand the American way of life.
She has won numerous awards including a World Press Photo Foundation Award and an Award of Excellence in the Pictures of the Year International Competition for her wedding portraits of a U.S. Marine who was severely injured in a suicide bombing in Iraq. The portraits are from Berman’s series “Purple Hearts” in which she documents the lives of American soldiers after they return home from the Iraq War.
Berman’s photographs have been published in numerous publications including Time, Life, National Geographic, Harpers, Sports Illustrated, Rolling Stone and the New York Times magazine.
