Ed Kashi is a photojournalist, filmmaker and educator dedicated to documenting the social and political issues that define our times. He is a member of the photo agency VII, and his images have been published and exhibited worldwide. Using stills in a moving image format, Kashi, together with Mediastorm, produced the Iraqi Kurdistan Flipbook, which has been shown at many film festivals and as part of a series of exhibitions on the Iraq War at George Eastman House, in New York City. An eight-year personal project completed in 2003, Aging in America: The Years Ahead, led to a traveling exhibition, an award-winning documentary film, a website, and a book that was named one of the best photobooks of 2003 by American Photo. Along with numerous awards, including, UNICEF's Photo of the Year 2010, a Prix Pictet 2010 commission, and honors from Pictures of the Year International, Communication Arts and American Photography, Kashi's editorial assignments and personal projects have generated six books. The most recent, Three, is based on a series of triptychs culled from more than 20 years of image making. In 2002, Kashi and his wife, the writer and filmmaker Julie Winokur, founded Talking Eyes Media, a not-for-profit company that has produced numerous short films and multimedia pieces, exploring significant social issues. The first project resulted in a book and traveling exhibition on uninsured Americans, called Denied: The Crisis of America's Uninsured.
