TEDxArendal 2023 talk:

Meet the visual journalist, Nora Savosnick. She is on a mission to reshape how we view authorship and credibility in journalism. Her work focuses on humanitarian crises and covering conflicts around the world. Through her lens, she amplifies the voices of those central to the narratives and rewrites history. Nora’s work stands as proof of journalism’s power in documenting the truth.

Speaker Bio:

Her work focuses on humanitarian crises and covering conflict, driven by a commitment to amplifying the voices of those central to these narratives. Growing up in Oslo as a granddaughter of a Jewish Holocaust survivor, Nora was deeply affected by the realization that the Nazis had captured most images from Auschwitz during the war. This drove her determination never to let perpetrators control the visual narrative and to challenge journalists’ authenticity. Her work has led her to report on conflicts in Ukraine, Haiti, Israel, and the Palestinian territories while also covering politics across America.

In 2018, Nora received the Reuters scholarship for visual journalism at the International Center of Photography.

She is currently based in New York, and her work can be seen in publications such as The New York Times, Reuters, Aftenposten, Aftonbladet, and others.
