2015 PhotoEx Symposium

Andrew Beck Grace & Alex Wittholz present at the third annual Photography, Expanded Symposium on November 1st, 2015.

"After the Storm" is an immersive personal essay created on the fourth anniversary of a tornado that ripped through Tuscaloosa, Alabama, killing 50 people and leaving another 10,000 homeless. Data visualizations, first-person narrative, archival footage and illustrations tell the story of what happens when we pick up the pieces and start over again. After the Storm is a collaboration between filmmaker Andrew Beck Grace and Helios Design Labs.

Photography, Expanded is a Magnum Foundation initiative designed to inspire documentary photographers to expand their storytelling beyond the still image. Through intensive workshops and panel discussions photographers learn about emerging digital tools and methods to engage audiences across platforms and mobilize communities around social justice issues.
