Within the Fabrica Creative Labs, on Thursday 2 July from 15:00 to 16:00 CEST Reed Young, American photographer and writer and Jaka Vinsek, Slovenian videomaker, will give an online lecture on multimedia storytelling.
In March 2019 America’s Midwest was devastated by the Missouri River flooding. Photographer and writer Reed Young and filmmaker Jaka Vinsek travelled to Hamburg, Iowa, to examine what such a disaster means for a small town and its citizens. As first-time multimedia storytellers, they learned a lot during their three week investigation and in the months of post-production that followed. In this webinar, they will present their project and talk about what they learned about multimedia storytelling through the process.

Reed Young is a Brooklyn-based photographer and storyteller. Fascinated by small communities and groups of people brought together by a simple common thread, his work has a particular focus on those whose narratives typically live outside the spotlight. Recently these have ranged from the voice actors who dub popular Hollywood films into Italian, to a city in Azerbaijan that doesn’t have a single Azerbaijani resident. His work has been featured in National Geographic, The New Yorker, The New York Times, TIME magazine, NPR, Wired and The Guardian.
Jaka Vinšek is a Slovenian-born, Brooklyn-based photographer and cinematographer. His personal projects focus on the passion of others, from athletes pushing their bodies to the limit to medical professionals helping those in need. Exploring diverse cultures and alternative lifestyles, Jaka’s work seeks intimate moments within the unfamiliar.
Since relocating to the United States in 2010, Jaka has worked with a variety of documentary, fashion and lifestyle clients. Beside his photographic work, he also shot two award-winning, feature-length documentaries: Defining Hope, which examines the end of life treatment in America, and The American Nurse, which showcases the lives and incredible stories of nurses across the country. Both films have been shown in theaters throughout the US.
