Chavez has recorded the effects of war in Colombia, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Angola; the AIDS crisis in more than a dozen countries in Africa; and the battle to eradicate polio in countries in Africa and Asia. In addition, he has covered stories locally and nationally, focusing on the aftermath of 9/11; homeless populations; and those addicted to drugs. His professional career includes positions at the Denver Post and the Boston Globe. His work has been nationally recognized with many awards, including the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Media Fellowship as well as the Pictures of the Year competition.

Share and discuss documentary projects

If you are looking for feedback on your documentary work or a place to meet with others involved with or interested in documentary photography, join SDN and Digital Silver Imaging for Documentary Matters. This is a free and open meeting for anyone interested in presenting, viewing, or discussing documentary photography. Glenn Ruga from the Social Documentary Network and ZEKE magazine will moderate the meeting.
You can show work in progress or completed work, or you can present a topic relevant to documentary. There are five 20-minute slots available each evening. We will review submissions and get back to you prior to the evening.
You don't have to be a professional, expert, or established--you just need to be committed to the documentary form and committed to learning from feedback from others. And you don't need to be a photographer or presenting your work to attend. Everyone is invited to join us, look, listen, and comment. Still photography, multimedia, and video encouraged. Documentary required.

Refreshments will be served--particulary if you bring them.
