Images that Shape History

November 1, 2013 | 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Photojournalists whose iconic images of tragic events share what it’s like to witness history through a camera lens, reflect on why their images have proved so enduring, and offer insight on why pictures have so much power to shape our understanding of tragedy. Panelists include Bob Jackson, formerly of The Dallas Times-Herald, who witnessed the killing of Lee Harvey Oswald and took Pulitzer Prize-winning photos of the events that day, and John Moore of Getty Images, an Irving native who photographed the assassination of Benazir Bhutto. A third Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist, Kim Komenich, formerly of the San Francisco Chronicle and now at San Jose State University, moderated. Presented by The Ochberg Society for Trauma Journalism in partnership with The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza.
