Looking Back

PRESENTED ON MAY 14, 2014
IN ST. AUGUSTINE @ VOL 4

Walter Coker looks back over twenty years of photography and shares with us what it has taught him about compassion. The world can be a big and cruel of only the strong, smart, and rich survive. This is not all entirely true, and some get left behind, pushed aside, and even abused from the rest of the pack. Walter shares his photos and stories to remind us that we need to show more compassion everyday. Not only to each other, but with the nature that lives with us. 

"Presentation of the Day" on December 9, 2014.

Compassion is Photography

BY LAINA BROWN
@ VOL 28 ON NOV 24, 2016

Laina Brown is an art student at the U of M, a social advocate, and owner of her own business Laina Brown Photography. She loves to enter into people’s monumental events or everyday lives to document and artistically render their memories as a collaborator with them. This love has taken her to spaces like Winnipeg’s “Meet Me at the Bell Tower”, to spaces such as Auschwitz and Treblinka with the March of Remembrance and Hope, to the boarders of Eastern Turkey, and to beautiful weddings all across Western Canada. In each place it is the people she is most interested in, and how they make meaning from their environments - listening and compassion as the keys to successful photography.

Easter at the western tip of Sicily is an intense experience for any photographer and is especially demanding for those who participate in the 24h-long Processione dei Misteri.
