KEYNOTE: Chasing Light: Behind the Scenes
Limited Capacity seats available

Documenting a widely-admired and closely scrutinized individual is an immense responsibility, and one Amanda Lucidon fulfilled to great acclaim. As one of only a few female White House photographers in history, Amanda Lucidon spent four years documenting First Lady Michelle Obama and President Barack Obama. Can we say dream job? This talk goes behind the scenes of some of the most powerful moments in Lucidon’s collection of photographs of the First Lady, offering a rare insider’s perspective on her experiences as a photographer and discussing the powerful impact of visual imagery on our past, present, and future.

Amanda will speak photographer to photographer. She will discuss her approach to documentary photography, share how she evokes emotion in the viewer while striving to create a connection between the viewer and a diverse set of people and places, and discuss her triumphs and challenges during her time in the White House. Finally, as a trailblazer in an industry typically dominated by men, Amanda will speak candidly about her experiences and how we as women can lift each other as we climb in our professions.

Amanda will also host a book signing after her keynote. A limited number of copies of her New York Times bestselling book, Chasing Light, will be on hand. Attendees may also purchase a copy in advance at Amazon.com.
