The panel, Land Grabbing: Raising Awareness with Multimedia, will discuss how photography and multimedia can be used as a tool to increase awareness of systemic global issues that are often not covered by mainstream media outlets, using land grabs as a case study.

Photoville, the modular pop-up venue built from 50-plus shipping containers, returns to Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York City for 10 days of photo exhibitions, talks and workshops. Expecting over 80,000 visitors in its third year, Photoville is an immersive and massive photographic event.

Saulo joins photojournalist Alfredo Bini, Human Rights Watch Program Director Iain Levine, media executive Greg Moyer and Environmental Sciences professor Paolo D’Odorico for the panel.

The panel will take place on Sunday, September 21 from 6:00-7:30pm at the Photoville Talk Area, at the storefront of One Brooklyn Bridge Park at the corner of Joralemon Street & Fuman Street. The talk is free and seating is first come, first serve. Sign up in advance to claim your seat at Eventbrite.
