Leica Lounge with Raul Touzon | Thurs, Apr 7, 2016 | 7pm - 8:30pm
Join us in the Leica Lounge on Thursday, April 7, 2016 with documentary photographer Raul Touzon. Raul will talk about visual storytelling and show images from his extensive travels.
Says Touzon, "Visual storytelling is my passion. Being able to communicate the complexities of human drama with a small set of pictures and without the help of words fascinates me. Wonders of Visual Storytelling covers several of my most interesting bodies of work (most of them ongoing) and will take us in a journey from the North Pole, to the sands of Sudan to the streets of Guatemala for Easter Week. Simple pictures, big stories."
The Leica Lounge is a lecture series hosted by Leica Store Miami which features presentations by local members of the photographers, editors, gallerists and educators. Held monthly, these free events are designed to create and inspire the local photography community through sharing images and exchanging ideas.
The Leica Lounge is kindly sponsored by Brooklyn Brewery. Participants will be able to sample some of their amazing craft beers during the event. Brooklyn Brewery is one of the largest craft breweries in the United States, producing a portfolio of traditional and experimental beers sure to impress any beer drinker.
