Magic, conflict, the very real, and the surreal — see how two innovators change the way we look at things and use imagery to create conversation. Hear from:
- Russian artist and photographer Ellen Sheidlin. Ellen, also known as Sheidlina, creates an absurdist world highlighted by the magical realism of her dream-inspired photographic art. Working with clients including BMW, Nike, and L’Oréal, and having amassed a huge Instagram following, her influence and social commentary have reach.
- Jimmy Nelson, the British-born photographer known for his striking images of indigenous and tribal peoples. He strongly believes that aesthetic creates empowerment for a better world. Many of his images lean into fear and confrontation to engage us in conversation and initiate the exchange of provocative ideas.
