Stacy Pearsall, founder of the Veteran's Portrait Project, will present her talk - Combat from Behind the Camera - in the SALT Block Auditorium.
Pearsall’s empowering presentation draws upon the hardships she faced as a woman and photographer in combat. She’s documented some of the most dangerous battles of our time, has been wounded in combat and lived to tell her story. Hers is an amazing visual journey of personal and photographic growth. Not only do the images tell the story of the soldiers she’s documented, but also her own tale of friendships she made and tragically lost. You’ll see what combat is like from behind the camera. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry. Most of all, you’ll be in awe.
Program is presented by Catawba Valley Camera Club and Hickory Museum of Art in conjunction with the limited engagement exhibition UNEXPECTED BEAUTY: Views from the Lens of Steve McCurry.
