What a great day

I spent the day at the well-organized and inspiring Savage Seminar. Photojournalists — really storytellers — showed us such a range of visuals and videos and slide shows. I laughed. I cried. I turned my head away at times. But what blew me away more than the powerful visuals were the photojournalists, who were generous, enthusiastic and full of passion for their work. That’s what I would really want my students to see: the passion, the belief in telling stories that can change lives, the reason I love journalism. Thanks to Matt Miller and the other hard-working organizers for a great day.

Here are some links to the work of some of the photojournalists there:
