Lucie Lecture Series

Conversations about inspiration and the creative process.

The Lucie Foundation’s mission is to honor master photographers, discover and cultivate emerging talent, and promote the appreciation of photography worldwide. We reach the most high-end art directors, photo editors and renowned photographers with our marketing and events.

The Lucie Foundation is proud to announce a series of intimate evenings called “The Story Behind the Image.” These keynote addresses will give both photography lovers and avid news consumers an opportunity to truly understand the impact an image has on social change and our world. These photographers risk their lives to tell the truth and share their vision. It is a privilege to learn more about what it took to get these images and what was happening behind the scenes.

These events will highlight political photojournalists in a series around the country. Some possible speakers include John Moore, James Nachtwey, Steve McCurry, Susan Meisels, Reza, Shahidul Alam, David Burnett, John White and more to provide insight into their images. Attendees would be charged $25-$100 to attend depending on the seats. The events will take place at various locations with about 500 people in attendance depending on the venue. We also hope to partner with a prominent news publication on this endeavor. A percentage of the profits will go to a charity of that photographer’s choice.

We invite your company to provide financial partnership for this special endeavor to illuminate our world. This will provide you with great exposure with a broad consumer base through all of the marketing events leading up to the event and after. We would like to host three of these to start in Washington DC, NYC and Los Angeles.
