Arnold Newman Distinguished Lecture in Photography

Fazal Sheikh

During a career of more than 25 years, photographer Fazal Sheikh has focused on raising awareness of international human-rights issues through his critically acclaimed work. The artist will discuss his documentary-based photography practice and Common Ground, which features more than 170 portraits and landscapes chronicling individuals living in displaced and marginalized communities around the world, many times as the result of war, exploitation, and poverty.
