Anush Babajanyan writes: “Some of the most pur­pose­ful work I have done has been for UNICEF. During this lec­ture, I speak about the cre­ation of two larg­er projects–the sto­ries, their depth and mean­ing, my con­nec­tion to them and the chal­lenges in the process of pho­tograph­ing lives of chil­dren around the world. I close by show­ing work from my own home, where I recent­ly turned the cam­era towards my chil­dren and me.”

This lec­ture was orig­i­nal­ly host­ed at VII Interactive, a new resource for shar­ing insights and infor­ma­tion on the craft of visu­al sto­ry­telling. 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.
