Presented by Social Documentary Network and Digital Silver Imaging

Maranie StaabMaranie R. Staab is a Pittsburgh-based photographer and journalist working to document human rights and social justice issues, displacement, and the periphery of conflict — how violence and war affects individuals and societies. Her work focuses on people and especially those in marginalized parts of society — whether domestically or abroad. She photographs to dispel misconceptions, to underline the common humanity that unites us all, and to further understanding of a world outside of our own. To date, her work has taken her throughout Eastern and Western Europe, Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East. She is self-taught and has been a full-time, independent photographer since September 2015 after taking a leap of faith and leaving her well-paying yet wholly unfulfilling corporate job to pursue photography and journalism. She wakes up each day on fire to become a better photographer and human -- and to do work that matters. Maranie has been published in The Atlantic, Reuters, Esquire, CNN, Huffington Post, Mashable, Rudaw and works regularly with numerous Pittsburgh-area newspapers and magazines.


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.
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.
