Ryan Spencer Reed, photojournalist and contributing photographer to the Darfur/Darfur multimedia exhibit

It was real nice to meet and hear Ryan Spencer Reed, photojournalist and contributing photographer to the Darfur/Darfur multimedia exhibit, spoke when he was in Calgary opening the exhibit. As I blogged previously, I found some the following videos in Ryan’s site,

  1. Quicktime slide show with beautiful music of some photos by Ryan
  2. An video interview of Ryan set to some of his photos

In the following video, Ryan tells the story of how one of his photo was used by Newsweek very differently in its international edition and in its American edition. To me, it is a telling story of how US media are tailoring their story to their own national interest.

Here is my interview with Ryan where he shared with us his emotional experience in taking pictures in Sudan, and what can actions can people in the west take to stop the atrocities in Darfur (SudanDivestment.org).

    Glad to hear you and other students at Whitinsville Christian school had a chance to meet and listen to Ryan and were inspired by him to get the word out. The genocide and atrocities in Darfur have to stop and every little bit of our effort counts.

    Hello Mr. Kempton,

    I am currently in the process of doing an interview with Mr. Reed for a profile for one of my journalism classes at Plattsburgh State University. I would appreciate it if I could also interview you so that I can get a different view of what he is like and his mission. You can email me back at the above email address.

    Thank you so much, Nick Persad
