June 8 1982


The recording begins mid-event. In the first of two segments, Ross Baughman's discusses his career and his approach to photojournalism. The bulk of the presentation consists of a slideshow of Baughman's work, during which he relays his experiences working with gangs in Los Angeles, with the Ku Klux Klan, as well as doing editorial work for magazines. During the second segment, Baughman touches upon the ethics of protecting the anonymity of photographic subjects. He invites feedback from audience members, who ask questions throughout. Towards the end he tries a "journalistic experiment" by asking an audience member to narrate his slideshow from the beginning. The recording ends while the event is still in process.
