“A Chapter of Human Trafficking: Cambodia” - Tim Matsui at the Henry Art Gallery

© Tim Matsui

Blue Earth is proud to host Tim Matsui presenting “A Chapter of Human Trafficking: Cambodia,” the fourth lecture in our new series on documentary photography that focuses on global environments, social, and cultural issues. Tim will be speaking in Seattle, WA at the Henry Art Gallery on Saturday, May 9th at 2 p.m.

Tim will speak about his ongoing work documenting the complexities of human trafficking and exploitation, highlighting his time in Southeast Asia. With an eye toward regional policy, Tim will provide glimpses into reality of human trafficking and methods employed to counter exploitation. While the story can be as simple as a child sold by his or her parents, the complexities lie in education, poverty, health care, gender equality; these turn human trafficking, he believes, into a mere symptom of a greater problem. Tim will put a face to one small part, and help the audience better understand their role, in the global slave trade.

Tim Matsui is a Seattle-based multimedia journalist covering alternative energy, the environment, and social issues like human trafficking and sexual violence. He co-founded the 501(c)3 non profit FEAR Project, the Travel and Outdoor Photographer’s Alliance, and speaks with international visitors hosted by the US State Department and World Affairs Council. Tim is a past Blue Earth Project Photographer, for his sexual violence work, and is a recipient of grants from the Open Society Institute, Fund for Investigative Journalism, and King County 4Culture.

All lectures are held Saturdays, 2 p.m.at the Henry Art Gallery Auditorium, 15th Ave NE & 41st Street in Seattle.  Admission is free for Henry Art Gallery and Blue Earth members; $5 for students w/ ID or $10 for general admission.  Tickets will be available at the door.
