Description

In this audiovisual recording from Thursday, October 29, 2020, as part of the 51st Annual UND Writers Conference: “The Working Classes,” Richard Tsong-Taatarii gives a presentation of his work. Tsong-Taatarii presents photographs from his projects “Lakota Resistance: the Bison, the Horse, and the River” and “Yearning for Love,” which explores life on the Pine Ridge Reservation as well as the Dakota Access Pipeline Protests. Tsong-Taatarii also presents photographs from his work documenting the Black Lives Matter Movement and the George Floyd Protests in Minneapolis. Tsong-Taatarii responds to audience questions about choosing to shoot in black and white, how he thinks of his own safety while documenting protests and riots, what it feels like to be at the heart of history while it’s happening, the difference of protest coverage between social media and the news as someone who has first hand experience, words of advice for those looking to go into journalism, how art influences the work he does, and whether he considers himself an optimist or a pessimist in the possibility of future change in the world.

Introduced by Nicole Derenne, Department of Art & Design.
