International Photojournalist to Present "Impunity" on July 12
The UPEI Distinguished Visitor Speaker Series continues on July 12 with Carlos Reyes-Manzo, an international photojournalist. He will show and discuss his work in a presentation entitled "Impunity" at 3:00 pm in the K.C. Irving Chemistry Centre on the UPEI campus.
Over more than 30 years as a photojournalist, Mr. Reyes-Manzo has had his work published extensively in newspapers, magazines, and books, and he has held numerous solo exhibitions. Born in Chile in 1944, he studied photography at the Film Institute of the Catholic University of Chile. In 1982, he established the Andes Press Agency.
Reyes-Manzo was commissioned by Save the Children to document its work in Iraq. His work has taken him to many places: Sri Lanka, India, Nepal, Central America, Ethiopia, and North America. His powerful photographs document the lives of people, particularly children. He has recently completed work with Dr. Vianne Timmons at the University of Prince Edward Island. This is Reyes- Manzo's second visit to Prince Edward Island and Canada.
The UPEI Distinguished Visitor Speaker Series presentations take place on Wednesdays at 3:00pm, with historic campus tours at 4:00pm, throughout the summer and early fall. Admission is free. In addition to the Wednesday lectures, presentations are being scheduled at other times based on the availability of speakers.
