Visual Courage

Today was our McGill Symposium for Journalistic Courage and I was thrilled to have documentary photojournalist Billy Howard come in to talk about his work. The bulk of our time was spent on his book, Epitaphs for the Living, a series of portraits he did in the 1980s about people living with HIV/AIDS.

We also touched on his work documenting other subcultures, from strippers to kids with cancer. Powerful stuff.
