In the picture with John Moore – Pakistan on the Brink FULLY BOOKED

John Moore has spent most of the last year photographing Pakistan’s slide into instability and in December 2007 was one of the few photographers present at the assassination of Benazir Bhutto. Tonight, for one night only, he presents his work and talks in the context of the events in Pakistan over the last twelve months.

John was recently awarded the Robert Capa Gold Medal at the Overseas Press Club of America Awards for his coverage of the Bhutto assassination. This was in addition to the two first places he won at the World Press Photo Awards 2008 for the same story.

John has lived in Pakistan for over two years and has worked as Senior Photographer for Getty Images since 2005. He has worked throughout South Asia, Africa and the Middle East and was part of the AP team that won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Breaking News Photography for their coverage of the war in Iraq.
