most important part and then funding and finally how do we disseminate disseminate our work? Ron what's our goal here we'll really hope they're goingto understand the power of visual journalism like what it can do like well you're going to impact one person's life for millions of people I could understand how visual imagery can be an agent of change and so we find this like an incredibly inspiring way to spend our time and we hope that you're going to understand the reasons behind why we do what we do and how you know how we can hopefully all make the world a little bit of a better place, certainly through by the use of visual imagery, so I just wanted to talk a little bit about the man standing to my left ed cash she you know, it's really it's an honor for me to be now a partner or a business partner with ed, but just also just to know him as a photographer to know his work. I mean, it has been remarkable in the breath of his work, from his documentation of aging to his work with the kurds to syrian refugees to immigrant immigrant, the immigrant community in america and many other things is really somebody who is incredibly passionate about what he does and you guys are going to see that today he really wants us to care about the people that we're seeing, the issues that he's talking about and he really wants to of course, to be an agent of change, one of the things that not a lot of people know about cashing it's one of the things that I think takes my respect of his work to another level even higher than just sort of how great uses a photo journalist is that it is a very rare person in that he, when necessary will turn the camera on himself and his family to talk about stories that are important so he will photograph the world outside of his immediate life but he will also photograph his life inside and that is something very rare very few of us including myself would ever say like, oh, let me document my family the way that it is done and so it's really you know, I think his work which you'll see is quite remarkable and he's a very important example of the power visual imagery well, thank you run let me tell you something about ron ron haviv is, um is fearless and incredibly intelligent. I learned stuff from him all the time and he's very committed the work that he has done, whether it's covering the white house for newsweek or or you know political campaigns or and the tremendous he work work he did in the nineteen nineties during the balkans war. Some of that I remember some of his pictures when I saw them and I didn't know him and and it it was like he brought us back to the concentration camps of world war two those images of his from shrub anita in bosnia and and pictures like that actually changed how governments dealt with that situation, and to me that reflects the power and the purpose of why it's so important to do this work? Um, I mean, ron's ron's pictures have had an impact on on laws, on government action and, of course, very profoundly on our profession. Well, in honor to be here with you. Thanks. So we're both honored, so that's, exciting.
