Syria's Conflict Behind The Lens

Syria's Conflict Behind The Lens: Rick Findler is an award-winning photojournalist who has covered some of the most dangerous and violent conflicts on the planet. He has documented the Libyan civil war, al-Shabaab terrorists in Somalia and the rise and fall of ISIS across Syria and northern Iraq. But out of all of the countries he has been to, none are more prevalent in today's news than Syria - a country that he has revisited on a number of occasions since a first project in 2012. In this heart-pounding talk, Finlder will take the audience right to the front lines, sharing how he was smuggled across the closed borders of Syria in the dead of night and near misses from a Syrian regime sniper, reflecting on what it is really like to work in one of the most dangerous countries in the world. Hosted by Funzing Talks, taking place on 24 May, 2018 at Beach Blanket Babylon Shoreditch, 19-23 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA.
