The aim of the Documentary Photography: Through the Lens series is to explore photography as a visual language to communicate ideas - political, religious, social and environmental - and to build a narrative that creates interesting intersections between the personal and the public.

NYU Florence Professor Alessandra Capodacqua curates a series of talks and workshops by renowned international documentary photographers who present their work and discuss the importance of documenting our world through photography.

A series of workshops allows students to work in small groups with the photographers, who further share their experience and expertise, provide practical training and individual feedback on students´work.

Recently returned from Afghanistan, Monika Bulaj explores the borders of faith - mysticism, archetypes, divination, possession, pilgrims and the cult of the dead - through her photography. She is also interested in minorities, nomads, migrants, outcasts and the dispossessed in Asia, Europe and Africa. She has received 
numerous prestigious photography awards, has published her work in Corriere della Sera, GEO, National Geographic, Internazionale and has published various books including, most recently, The Hidden Light of Afghanistan.Recently returned from Afghanistan, Monika Bulaj explores the borders of faith - mysticism, archetypes, divination, possession, pilgrims and the cult of the dead - through her photography.
