Shooting Ghosts: A Combat Photographer and His Journey Back From War

Wed. Sep 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

- Free

Award winning conflict photojournalist, Finbarr O’Reilly will speak about his new book, the unpredictability of war and its aftermath, the things he has seen and done, the ways he has been affected, and how he has navigated the psychological aftershocks of war and wrestled with reforming his identity and moral center.

Finbarr was a 2016 writer in residence at the McDowell Colony and at the Casey Institute for Global Good. He was also a 2015 Yale World Fellow. Before turning to writing, Finbarr was a Reuters senior photographer based in Tel Aviv, covering Israel and Palestinian Territories, and the 2014 Gaza war. He was a 2013 Nieman Fellow at Harvard and a 2014 Ochberg Fellow at Columbia University’s DART center for Journalism and Trauma.

He covered Africa as a Reuters correspondent and staff photographer for 10 years. He won the World Press Photo of the Year in 2006, and has since won numerous industry awards for his multimedia work and photography.
