DESCRIPTION

In 2010, Canadian brothers Jeff and Andrew Topham returned to the war-torn West African country of their childhood, Liberia. Discovering that much of Liberia's photographic record of its peaceful past had been destroyed by war, they created a documentary and online photo project culminating in an exhibition currently housed at the National Museum in Monrovia and will discuss the importance of photography in the rebuilding of a society devastated by war.

Online registration for this event opens Wednesday, May 15 at 12pm PST and Thursday, May 16 at 9:30am PST

The Annenberg Space for Photography offers live programming through our IRIS Nights lecture series, a public program offered free of charge, by online reservation on a first-come, first-served basis. The series brings to life the most current exhibit with presentations by exhibit featured photographers and other notable experts and guest artists. These programs give attendees unique access to the artists in the intimate setting of the Photography Space.

Please note that our lectures tend to fill up quickly. Don't be discouraged if you are unable to get tickets through our online ticketing system. The standby list for each lecture begins at 5pm on the day of the event in person at the Photography Space. About 10 minutes prior to the start of the lecture, we release any seats that have not been claimed by ticketholders to our standby guests.
