To mark World Press Freedom Day, our special May edition of Head On Spotlight will feature Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Michael Robinson Chávez. Michael has had an incredible career, working with the Washington Post, Associated Press, The Boston Globe, and The Los Angeles Times.
This year’s World Press Freedom Day theme, ‘Information as a Public Good’ explores how to strengthen journalism and advance transparency. The past few years have highlighted the critical need for freedom of the press. ‘Fake news’ and misinformation have spread fast and there is growing doubt in news outlets. Meanwhile, world events have proved the need for the accurate and prompt spread of information.
Join us at 1 pm Monday 3 May (Sydney time) to hear about Michael’s fascinating career, the stories behind his incredible images, and what it is like to work as a photojournalist in the U.S. at such a polarising time.
