Ed Kashi is a renowned photojournalist, filmmaker, speaker and educator who has been making images and telling stories for 40 years. His restless creativity has continually placed him at the forefront of new approaches to visual storytelling.

The exhibit celebrates “Abandoned Moments: A Love Letter to Photography” (Kehrer Verlag, March 2022) his newest book featuring photographs made over a 40-year period that reveal imprecise glimpses of transitory events filled with frenetic energy – the chaos of everyday life. On April 1, Ed Kashi held an intimate Gallery talk about the new book and his process and approach to photography. Watch the Gallery presentation on YouTube here.

“I take on issues that stir my passions about the state of humanity and our world, and I deeply believe in the power of still images to change people’s minds. I’m driven by this fact; that the work of photojournalists and documentary photographers can have a positive impact on the world. The access people give to their lives is precious as well as imperative for this important work to get done. Their openness brings with it a tremendous sense of responsibility to tell the truth but to also honor their stories.” – Ed Kashi
