Los York’s Latest Camera Club Series Instalment Features Conflict Photographer and DP Zach Lowry
Multidisciplinary creative studio Los York is hosting the latest segment of its ongoing Camera Club series, held over Zoom on Thursday, May 6th from 5:30 – 7:30 PM PDT. Titled 'From Commercials to Conflict Zones', the event will feature a conversation with DP / photographer Zach Lowry about how he uses his creative talent in a world-changing way. Diving into the stories behind his photographs, Lowry will share his experience documenting political revolution and conflict, and how he balances this work with commercial filmmaking.
Past Camera Club events include a panel discussion with director Jeff Johnson, photographer Ben Moon, and Rivian creative director Larry Parker about their short documentary 'The Lucky Ones', as well as an ongoing 'directors’ Workshop' series that unpacks the process of commercial filmmaking.
Zach Lowry is a documentary photographer and DOP currently based in Pioneertown, CA. Focusing on issues of human rights, political revolution, and conflict, he has documented both armed and environmental conflicts in Iraq, Syria, and India. As a result of his travels to Mosul, Iraq in July 2017 to document the impending liberation of the city, Lowry published a book, 'Last Days of Mosul'. His work from the same trip was featured at a New York City gallery in a philanthropic exhibition to benefit a frontline medical NGO.
“Los York has always believed that we are not defined by a zip code, but by the people, ideas, and experiences we discover,” says founder/ECD Seth Epstein. “Camera Club is a way to experience new ideas and come together to improve our craft. Zach’s work and approach challenged and inspired me to examine how I am using my talents for good.”
“Now, more than any other time in history, we can leverage the power of still imagery and film as instruments of truth and understanding” says Lowry. “I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts on how others can use their abilities to affect meaningful change.”
