PSNWA General Meeting – Jul 2016
- July 5, 2016
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Stephen Ironside is an award-winning photographer born and raised in Fayetteville. He has experienced many far away places, and created a lot of images of and for the people who call those places home. Stephen has made it his life’s endeavor to use his talents as best he can to leave the world, as he’s seen it, as he’s known it, a little better off. At this meeting, he will be presenting work from his recent 7-week trip to Africa.
Storytelling through visual imagery has already brought him many opportunities. He’s documented clothing factories in India, a wedding in Bolivia, deadly snakes in Costa Rica, toy factories in China, and an ancient religious ceremony in the middle of nowhere in the Himalayas. But it doesn’t matter if he’s abroad or right at home in Arkansas; looking through the lens to craft a story and share it with others, and to see their reactions and how it can impact their lives, is what gets him up in the morning…oftentimes before sunrise. It’s better than the awards he’s won, and it’s better than that affirmative feeling of being published.
