Digital Storytelling through Photography: Peggy Peattie’s “Tales of the Street San Diego”
Join DH@SDSU and the School of Journalism and Media Studies for a lecture by Peggy Peattie, an award-winning journalist with 35 years of visual storytelling in the documentary tradition, with a concentration on social and environmental justice. Peattie’s images have been published in several book and magazines including Time, Newsweek, People, Sports Illustrated and Reportage, to name a few. Peattie’s lecture will center on her website Tales of the Street SD. The website is about our shared humanity. Peattie has been telling the stories of America's homeless individuals for more than 30 years, 19 of them in San Diego. Peattie will share her experience photographing the “residentially challenged” people among us and her process of curating the photos on her website. Join us as she takes us on a journey of storytelling through the digital humanities.
