National Geographic photographer to speak at church

TERRE HAUTE — Steven Ferry, known around the world for his photography for Human Rights Watch and National Geographic magazine, will speak about his newest book of photo essays at 2 p.m. Sunday at First Unitarian Universalist Congregation. The church is at 1875 S. Fruitridge Ave. The event is free and open to the public.

Ferry’s new book “Violentology” traces the roots of violence in Columbia that go back at least 100 years. It begins with the War for Independence from 1810-1819. Since then there have been numerous issues that have divided the country. He will speak about the brave citizens who work non-violently for change. At the present time armed guerrillas terrorize people and have displaced a variety of populations. According to Ferry, “such a routinization of guerrilla activity at this time has profound onerous effects on today’s Columbia.”

The photographer seeks to tell the story of the last 10 years through both sight and touch. The photos are published on unusually thick paper with soy ink “that soaks into the paper,” according to Ferry.
