Capturing the world through photography, video and multimedia

Los Angeles Times speaker series | Michael Robinson Chavez

We are excited to announce the launch of a new video series featuring the award-winning photo staff of the Los Angeles Times. Our hope is to engage you, our viewers, in a conversation about our work.

This series offers behind-the-scenes looks at our photojournalists, how they work and how they tell stories, along with their thoughts on photography. Times photojournalists are frequently asked to speak at events across the country. Rather than let these discussions disappear, we have recorded them in this permanent archive.

Michael Robinson Chávez has been a photographer at The Times since 2007 and lives outside Los Angeles. He has worked for the Washington Post, the Boston michael_robinson_chavez1Globe and the Associated Press. He has covered wide-ranging international assignments in more than 45 countries including: the Congolese civil war, violence in El Salvador, elections in Nepal, life in India’s slums, economic decline in the United States, the 2006 Hezbollah-Israeli war, the Georgian-Russian war in 2008, the conflict in Israel-Palestine and the U.S.-led invasion and occupation of Iraq.
