Through the Lens: An Evening with Eros Hoagland
LJML's Through the Lens presents an evening with Eros Hoagland, photojournalist
View two HBO documentaries that feature Hoagland's work, then enjoy a Q&A session with him afterwards.
Eros Hoagland,has worked as an independent photojournalist and documentary photographer since 1994. He is featured in the 2012 HBO documentary series "Witness."
He has concentrated on the exploration of countries and peoples immersed in cycles of violence across the globe. Assignments and personal projects have taken him to El Salvador, Colombia, Iraq and Afghanistan. His current work centers around US-Mexico border issues, particularly the effects and causes of organized crime in Mexico and throughout Latin America.
As well as documenting the political climate and social impact of conflict, Eros looks for an emotional and visceral narrative when approaching reportage projects. Themes are just as important as issues in Eros' photography. Subtleties are never overlooked as he conveys a feeling of place, character and a larger historical perspective to his viewers.
This event is co-sponsored by the Department of Literature, Journalism and Modern Languages (LJML) and PLNU's Center for Justice and Reconciliation.
