Christopher Morris dis­cuss­es how polit­i­cal pho­tog­ra­phy trans­formed his vision as a pho­tog­ra­ph­er and brought him to the real­iza­tion that he is a visu­al anthro­pol­o­gist. With exam­ples of his work from projects such as My America and Americans, he demon­strates the evo­lu­tion of his images into a pur­er form and shares with you his cur­rent work.

We are build­ing dif­fer­ent plat­forms with­in the VII ecosys­tem, where the pub­lic can engage direct­ly, online with a live instruc­tor. VII Interactive offers pro­gram­ming that is free and avail­able to every­one, in addi­tion to paid class­es and indi­vid­ual men­tor­ing that can be fash­ioned to your needs.
