President’s Circle Virtual Happy Hour
“Social Injustice through the Lens of Photography” with Steve Northup
As members of the President’s Circle, Founders’ Society, and Legacy Circle, you are cordially invited to attend a Virtual Happy Hour with President Michael F. Brown and photographer Steve Northup for a conversation, “Social Injustice through the Lens of Photography.” Steve will share with us his experiences while taking photos during civil rights demonstrations in the 1960s and in Viet Nam during the war years in 1965-1966 to help us put into context what we are experiencing now with Black Lives Matter and the struggle for justice for indigenous people across the country.
This event is free and open to members of the Board of Directors, Founders’ Society, and President’s Circle. Please RSVP to Lindsay Archuleta at email@example.com and she will send you the instructions to join via Zoom. Space is limited, so please reserve your spot today.
Steve Northup grew up in Santa Fe and has been a professional photographer for almost 60 years. He’s worked as a staff photographer for United Press International in the San Francisco, Miami and Saigon bureaus. He joined the Washington Post in late 1966, and moved to Time’s Washington bureau in 1971. He was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard. In the early 90’s he was Asst, Managing Editor at the Santa Fe New Mexican, where he raised a fine crop of young photographers.
Northup’s books include Naga Cities of the Mekong, by Martin Stuart-Fox, who was his correspondent during the Viet Nam war, and Festivals of Laos, also with Stuart-Fox. He spent fourteen years as the photographer for the Santa Fe Living Treasures project and was named a Living Treasure in 2019. This year he was honored by the National Press Photographers Association with their John Durniak Citation for mentoring, in recognition of his aiding joung news photographers, both here and in Viet Nam. His picture collection is held at the Briscoe Center for History, at the University of Texas in Austin.
