PhotoNight LII


PhotoNight at UNC’s School of Journalism and Mass Communication is back and in full swing! Tuesday night, Gary W. Green, a sports photographer, will share his photos and speak in room 33 of Carroll Hall on UNC’s campus. PhotoNight is free, open to the public and a rare opportunity to hear pro photographers talk about why and how they make their photos. Previous PhotoNights have featured Antonin Kratchovil of VII Photo Agency (also the home of James Nachtwey, one of my favorite photographers), Kristen Ashburn, Ami Vitale, Steve Liss, Pete Souza, Chris Hondros and various photographers from the News & Observer.

Below is the email from my professor with more about Gary W. Green. Feel free to email me if you don’t know how to get to Carroll 33, and I’ll help you out!

    • Hi Valeria —

      Thanks for your comment and feedback. Sounds like you have enjoyed our programs so far, and would love to have more that are more convenient. That is good to know and I will pass that along to Phaedra, our ArtSchool director. Hope we get to meet soon.
