Overview

Meiselas, whose documentary photographs are on view in Exposed, joins a group of journalistic innovators to discuss new forms of investigative journalism. As traditional, newspaper-based reporting faces decreasing resources and readership, how do we build a new infrastructure for investigative photojournalism? What roles do citizen journalism and activism via new media play? How do nonprofits, independent publishing houses, and even art spaces create new opportunities for great reporting to be seen and heard?
