Todd Heisler joined The New York Times as a staff photographer in 2006, the same year he won a Pulitzer Prize in feature photography for a project following a Marine casualty assistance officer and the families of Marines killed in Iraq. Leslye Davis is a documentarian and photographer who has covered the ISIS-led terrorist attacks in Paris and most recently reported from Houston, photographing Hurricane Harvey and its aftermath. Leading the discussion, accompanied by photos and videos is Meaghan Looram, a New York Times photo editor. Please note: this event is ticketed. Use promo code: CLICK ($5 off)
