epa talks is a regular podcast brought to you by EPA, where we go behind the scenes of the world’s biggest news events and discuss the dynamic and evolving world of photojournalism and visual journalism with our professionals and partners.

Episode 3 - War Photography

Join us this month for episode 3 of Epa Talks, where we discuss what it takes to be a war photographer. With the war in Ukraine dominating headlines around the world and bringing the kind of violence and bloodshed to Europe that had not been seen in 80 years, we asked Kim Ludbrook, epa’s South Africa photographer, and Gjorgji Licovski, a veteran epa photographer who covered the Balkan conflict in the 1990s, what a journalist has to go through to deliver coverage of an active war zone like the one that is unfolding in Ukraine. We also discuss the role that social media plays in the spread of information compared to traditional journalistic sources, as well as the importance of war photography in documenting a world-changing event and how the images can influence or even change the course of history.

Episode 1 - January 06 Attacks on the Capitol, one year on

 

In episode. 1, Epa talks to photographers Jim Lo Scalzo, Michael Reynolds, and Shawn Thew who were on the ground in Washington DC on January 6 last year covering what should have been a formality to confirm Joe Biden’s presidential election win. Instead, an angry mob of Donald Trump supporters attempted to storm the US Capitol following a ‘Stop the Steal’ rally outside the White House in what turned out to be one of the darkest days in US democracy.
