Photojournalist to Talk About Domestic Violence Activism

Donna Ferrato, award-winning photojournalist, will be at Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus next week to talk about her 30 years of photography and her campaign, I am Unbeatable, which uses to photographs to end domestic abuse.

She will also discuss her career as a photographer and the bridge between photojournalism and activism.

Wednesday, Oct. 9
4 p.m.
Room 524, Lowenstein Center, Lincoln Center Campus

Ferrato’s photographs exposed the secret world of domestic violence. Her landmark book Living with the Enemy (Aperture, 1991) made front-page news, including the cover of Time magazine. Her photographs and insights into the everyday impact of violence have made her a leading voice in documentary photography.
