Reza Deghati at #SIGEF2014: Art and Education for Social Change

A humanitarian at heart, Reza Deghati is a worldwide famous photojournalist whose work you may admire on the covers of National Geographic amongst other places.

I was lucky enough to listen, interpret and admire part of his work at SIGEF 2014 in Geneva where he was also a keynote speaker focusing his presentation on the role of art and education as catalysts for social change.

Just to give a glimpse into his artwork, I chose a picture from his website (Reza Photography) which best illustrates the saying: a picture is worth a thousand words.
