Cynthia Boll is an award winning Dutch photographer and founder of ‘Sinking Cities’, an integrated media, community awareness and science exploration project. Boll thrives on multi-disciplinary, creative exploration and making the world a better place through the art of storytelling. Creating a unique compelling visual story, combining documentary photography with new technologies and forms of communication, her stories are shown from the perspective of ordinary people.

The central theme of her body of work is the influence of political, economic and environmental factors on humans. In Boll’s view new developments in photojournalism and the ever-changing media offer challenges and new opportunities: to tell a story in a new innovative way focusing on participation and involvement.

Cynthia Boll will host the breakout session ‘Sinking Cities’ on may 8
