Seven Years on Pine Ridge: The evolution of a story from photojournalism to street art and beyond
Thursday, January 31st, 2013 6:30-8:00pm

Aaron Huey started photographing on the Pine Ridge Indian reservation in 2005 as part of a superficial story about poverty in America.  In beginning it was all just statistics:  90% unemployment, a %70 school dropout rate, and a male life expectancy of 47 (roughly the same as Afghanistan and Somalia).  Over time it became a story about a prisoner of war camp, a story about genocide, a story about stolen lands.

7 years after beginning this project, the story and Huey's relationships there are more complex than ever.  This talk will look at the evolution of a story from journalism to activism, and finally beyond Huey's own imagery towards a collaborative Community Story Telling project that lives online.

Aaron Huey is a photojournalist who works primarily for the National Geographic Society magazines, where he has shot over 20 features including the August 2012 cover story on the Oglala Lakota of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.   Huey is also a Contributing Editor at Harper's Magazine and was a 2012 Knight Journalism Fellow at Stanford University and a lecturer at TED.com.
