Details of Uncovering Hidden Worlds and the Ticket Luck value
Jodi Cobb is a photographer with the National Geographic. Her portfolio assembles a variety of pieces from more than sixty countries. Her works celebrate the most delightful of human spirits while also bringing attention to its most worrisome aspects. Cobb has established herself as an artist whose works chronicle the worlds that are shut out from outsiders, and situations that most journalists would cringe at getting into. The photographer has a knack for gaining access to such places and is the first among many to have crossed to China when it was first reopened to the Westerners. Quite remarkably, she is also the first woman to have earned the title of White House Photographer for the Year in 1985.
Among her many heartfelt undertakings, she strived to unleash the tough lives of Japan's Geishas, and revealed their hidden world in her book Geisha: The Voices, the Art, the Life. For this book, the photographer had to get through the tough boundaries these women are surrounded by. Moreover, her unwavering dedication to uncovering the nature of human trafficking helped to expose its harsh realities to public consciousness. This extraordinary story was captured in her 2003 piece 'Twenty First Century Slavery'. The upcoming event, Uncovering Hidden Worlds presents a retrospective experience of Cobb's most important works from among which she draws special attention to her most recent piece; a story on twins. Uncovering Hidden Worlds tickets bring us an opportunity to see what Cobb has painstakingly captured over years, in the comfortable interior of Dayton's Victoria Theatre.
