Care & Repair | UCI Photographing Care & Repair

Jan 18, 2024 / 5:00–6:00 pm
Zoom Webinar

How do we practice collective and self-care?

What are the connections between care and repair?

What are visual stories that show maintenance and healing on a personal, community, and/or societal level?

Join the UC Irvine Humanities Center for “How a Photographer Sees,” a hybrid event on January 18, in which Mark Leong, the professional mentor of the UC Irvine “Photographing Care & Repair” project, shares insights about his approaches to photography. 

On January 19 from 11:00 am to 12:00 pm, Leong will elaborate on his international photography career in another hybrid event, “Learned Territory: Photography Projects.” As he explains: “I often use the phrase learned territory to describe how even knowing a place like China, where I have roots, doesn’t come naturally to me.”

Leong is an award winning photojournalist whose photo essays have appeared in National Geographic, Smithsonian, and Time
