Webinar «Documentary Photography or History Through A Camera Lens»
On 22 December 2011, EDUkIT TV went on the air for the fourth time. The online seminar «Documentary Photography or History Through A Camera Lens» was dedicated to documentary photography.
The webinar was attended by Loli Kantor, a professional photographer from the USA. Loli is a fine art and documentary photographer based in Fort Worth, Texas, USA.
