Join the MoCP and photographer Carlos Javier Ortiz for a virtual sneak peek into his studio! 

Carlos Javier is a director, cinematographer and documentary photographer who focuses on urban life, gun violence, racism, poverty and marginalized communities. In 2016, Carlos received a Guggenheim Fellowship for film/video. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in a variety of venues including the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture; the Worcester Art Museum in Massachusetts; the International Museum of Photography and Film in Rochester, NY; the Detroit Institute of Arts; and the Library of Congress. In addition, his photos were used to illustrate Ta-Nehisi Coates’ The Case for Reparations (2014) article, which was the best-selling issue in the history of the Atlantic Magazine. His photos have also been published in The New Yorker, Mother Jones, among many others.

This event will be recorded and transcribed.  If you require special accommodations for this event, please contact mocp@colum.edu.
