There is a large community of photographers worldwide who strive to bring the injustices of our world to light and inspire change, despite the drastically changing media landscape. With the 21st century’s ubiquitous access to the Internet, it has become easier to spread ideas and awareness, however not without compromising the commercial photojournalism market.

“The presenters on this panel discussion will each talk about how socially conscious photographers are embracing the challenges of new technologies and a new economy to continue to inform the public about injustice and, in many cases, using this awareness to change the world.” Join the conversation at the PhotoPlus Expo on October 25, 2013 at 1:30 PM.
