Lou Jones' eclectic career has evolved from commercial to the personal. It has spanned every format, film type, artistic movement and technological change. He maintains a studio in Boston, Massachusetts and has photographed for Fortune 500 corporations, international companies and local businesses including Federal Express, Nike and the Barr Foundation. He has completed assignments for magazines and publishers all over the world such as Time/Life, National Geographic and Paris Match; initiated long term projects on the civil wars in Central America, death row, Olympics Games and pregnancy; and published multiple books.

Lou founded the panAFRICAproject to create a contemporary, visual portrait of modern Africa. Using photography and heretofore unavailable technologies, panAFRICAproject is establishing a repository of images that represents each of the 54 individual countries devoid of the preconceived, western notions of distress: conflict, pestilence and poverty, i.e. violence tourism. The panAFRICAproject intends to accurately document the highlights and inner workings of the most progressive twenty-first century continent.

Share and discuss documentary projects

If you are looking for feedback on your documentary work or a place to meet with others involved with or interested in documentary photography, join SDN and Digital Silver Imaging for Documentary Matters. This is a free and open meeting for anyone interested in presenting, viewing, or discussing documentary photography. Glenn Ruga from the Social Documentary Network and ZEKE magazine will moderate the meeting.
You can show work in progress or completed work, or you can present a topic relevant to documentary. There are five 20-minute slots available each evening. We will review submissions and get back to you prior to the evening.
You don't have to be a professional, expert, or established--you just need to be committed to the documentary form and committed to learning from feedback from others. And you don't need to be a photographer or presenting your work to attend. Everyone is invited to join us, look, listen, and comment. Still photography, multimedia, and video encouraged. Documentary required. 
Refreshments will be served--particulary if you bring them.
