Robert Nickelsberg’s work is featured in the Los Angeles World Affairs Council Commentary: Afghanistan in Photos.
The recent Cairo Review of Global Affairs quarterly publication features the photo essay “Images from a Land at War” by Robert Nickelsberg.
For an up-close view of photographs that won OPC awards this year, and a chance to meet some of the photographers, join the OPC Sept. 25 at the Columbia University School of Journalism.
The event will include a photo exhibit showcasing work by Tyler Hicks of The New York Times, who won the OPC’s Robert Capa Gold Medal and a Pulitzer Prize for his photos of the Kenyan mall massacre; OPC board member Robert Nickelsberg, who won the Olivier Rebbot Award for his book “Afghanistan – A Distant War“; and Jerome Delay of AP, who won the John Faber Award for his photos of unrest in the Central African Republic.
Nickelsberg will join Sarah Voisin, a 2009 OPC winner, and James Estrin, who is co-editor of The New York Times Lens Blog, to discuss best practices on international reporting. Voisin won the John Faber award in 2009 for her photos of Mexico’s drug war. She is a photographer for the Washington Post, and a co-founder of Women Photojournalists of Washington. Abi Wright, executive director of prizes at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and an OPC board member, will moderate.
September 16, 2014 Robert Nickelsberg will be speaking to a class about reporting across cultural lines, immersing themselves in the many ethnic and national groups concentrated in New York from the vantage point of international correspondents.
“We see through Nickelsberg’s eyes, the story of a country and its people as they transitioned from one war to the next.”
