Five photo journalists, who have worked in Iraq and covered other conflicts around the globe, will appear at a roundtable discussion, “War Photography: A Mission for the Ages,” hosted by New York University’s Department of Journalism on Thurs., Nov. 2, 6:30 to 8 p.m. at NYU’s Silver Center, Room 703 (100 Washington Square East [at Washington Place]). The photographers-Ron Haviv, Rita Leistner, Moises Saman, Farah Nosh, and Timothy Fadek-have worked in Iraq, Israel, Lebanon, the Palestinian territories, the Congo, the Balkans, Afghanistan, Colombia, Macedonia, and Haiti. Their work has appeared in numerous publications, including Life, Time, Newsweek, National Geographic, the New York Times, and the Washington Post.

The event is part of NYU Journalism’s Distinguished Speakers Forum, which has previously drawn Lawrence Wright, author of The Looming Tower: Al-Qaeda and the Road to 9/11; Gay Talese, a pioneer in narrative journalism; and Ron Suskind, author of The One Percent Doctrine and The Price of Loyalty, among other prominent journalists and authors.
