Siding with Humanity:
A National Geographic Photographer’s 50-Year Journey
Steve Raymer has lived an extraordinary life as a photographer, traveling the globe to capture images of conflict, human migration and trafficking, endangered wildlife and climate change. He will share some of the images from his new memoir, “Somewhere West of Lonely, My Life in Pictures,” along with the stories behind the camera. An authority in media ethics, Raymer also will discuss concerns about invasion of privacy and personal involvement in photography, as well as public perceptions that war photographers are merely troubled individuals addicted to the rush of adrenalin.
Mr. Raymer is an award-winning National Geographic photographer and author of books on subjects including Calcutta, the former British colonial capital of India, and Vietnam, where he served as a U.S. Army officer in 1968-1969. Raymer is an emeritus professor of journalism at Indiana University, where he earned a reputation as an authority on the ethics of the visual media. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and Stanford University, Raymer has worked in more than 100 countries. In 2018, Indiana University Press published Raymer’s visual memoir, his eighth book.
