João Pina is a Portuguese photographer who has worked primarily in Latin America but also has covered human-rights stories and conflicts in Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, Ivory Coast and Mozambique. He is a regular contributor to The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Washington Post, Le Monde, El País and Stern. In 2007, with Rui Daniel Galiza, he completed his first book, “Por teu livre pensamento,” featuring the stories of 25 former Portuguese political prisoners. In 2014, he published “Condor,” about a military operation designed to destroy political opposition to the military dictatorships in South America during the 1970s. While a Fellow at Nieman, Pina is studying the importance and impact of archival photography and the way its juxtaposition with current images can increase storytelling impact and outreach.

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.
