Why Storytelling Matters – A Photography Lecture

We’re incredibly excited to present a lecture by top photographers Tyrone Turner and Susan Sterner on June 22nd in Cape Town. Tyrone and Susan are award-winning American photographers who have traveled extensively to document a range of social and environmental issues. Join us at 6 Spin Street to see some of their best work, hear them tell the stories behind the images, and explain why photography and storytelling matter.

Tyrone will be running our upcoming Kruger wildlife photography workshop and our Cape Town photography workshop. (
