Middle Eastern Photojournalist
Comes to CSUS

George Azar, a photojournalist who has covered the Middle East for the past two decades, will present a lecture and slideshow at noon, Monday, Nov. 6. The event will be in the University Union Redwood Room at California State University, Sacramento.

Azar will talk about his experiences in the Middle East and prospects for peace in the region. His assignments have included the Gulf War, the Intifada, the Iran-Iraq War and the destruction of the U.S. Marine compound in Beirut. He also looks for examples of stereotypes of Arabs in the media and is developing a project highlighting outstanding Arab personalities in the United States and worldwide.

He is a photojournalist for many leading international publications, including the The New York Times, Newsweek, Time and U.S. News and World Report.
