This year’s Keynotes include Friday panel, A Day Without News, that asks the question: will there soon be a day when it is just too dangerous, and the risks are too great, for journalists to work in global conflict zones? Join David FriendVanity Fair's Editor of Creative DevelopmentSantiago LyonDirector of Photography at AP, and photojournalists Lynsey Addario, Ron Haviv, and Antonio Bolfo for first hand insights about how the increase in targeting journalists affects each panelist, their colleagues and the changing role of journalists overall. Thursday, October 30, 12:30. Information.

On Saturday, British documentarian and avid street photographer, Martin Parr, takes the stage to share and discuss images from his long career as a photographer, as well as his more recent work as an editor, curator, and passionate chronicler of photo books. His projects offer a penetrating and satirical vision of the world we live in and how we present ourselves, from what we value most to the food we eat. Working in a signature style of high-saturation color at close range, often using macro lenses and ring flash, Parr enables us to see the familiar in a completely new way. Friday, October 31, 12:30 pm. Information.

PDN PhotoPlus International Conference & Expo runs from October 30-November 1 at the Javits Convention Center. Information.
