Visualizing the World: Storytelling with Images from the Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism
This program features works by students at UC Berkeley’s J-School, who have produced outstanding, award-winning documentaries, photography, and multimedia projects covering topics from public health to immigration, human rights, and politics. These stories make use of still and moving imagery from around the world—including 360-degree video, drone photography, animation, and more—as well as dramatic personal narratives and visual design of data. For all the gloom and doom about the state of journalism as a business, this is a golden age of innovation for journalism, and technology is allowing us to cover local and global issues more easily and to distribute the work more broadly than ever before. Edward Wasserman, dean of the J-School; associate professor Richard Koci Hernandez; and professors Orlando Bagwell and Ken Light invite you to experience the best of the advanced work being done at the J-School, where students are pioneering the visual journalism of the future.
