“Photographic and video images can reveal great truths, expose wrongdoing and neglect, inspire hope and understanding and connect people around the globe through the language of visual understanding. Photographs can also cause great harm if they are callously intrusive or are manipulated.”

Alicia Wagner Calzada, president emeritus of the NPPA, will speak about issues of law and photography ethics Oct. 23 at 11 a.m. in Old Main room 201 as part of Texas State’s Mass Comm Week.

A graduate of the University of Texas and former photo editor of the Daily Texan, Calzada has worked for numerous publications and is the owner Journey Images. She is currently pursuing J.D. at St. Mary’s School of Law in San Antonio.

As part of the NPPA, Calzada advocated to association members and initiated projects such as the NPAA Find-a-Photographer service, Advocacy Committee and the Independent Photographers Toolkit.

Look for coverage and photos of Calzada’s talk here and in the #mcweek Twitter feed next Thursday.
