If you’re lucky enough to be in the New York area around October 26th to catch them, the PDN PhotoPlus Expo at the Javits Convention Center will once again host an impressive cohort of photographers as keynote speakers, including Pulizer winning photojournalist Barbara Davidson, Chase Jarvis, street photographer Jamel Shabazz, and many others. I’ve reproduced the official lineup below.
I’ll be in attendance to test out all of the latest equipment, including the new Sigma lens that is set to be announced shortly before the expo opens.

Today’s Women in Photography and Film (Sponsored by Canon)
Sue Bryce, Barbara Davidson, LaToya Ruby Frazier
Sue Bryce, Barbara Davidson, and LaToya Ruby Frazier will share their work and explain how they found the subjects that have ignited their commitment and passion. These visual storytellers will share the challenges of working in a male-dominated field, what’s inspired their creativity and drive, and the personal experiences that motivate their concern for the subjects they photograph. Sponsored by Canon, this panel will highlight career-defining images and new work by each of the photographers and provide inspiration on making images that are both deeply personal and universally relevant.
