Moderated by Lucian Perkins, with Frank Hallam Day, Marvin Joseph, Bill Crandall, Susana Raab and Astrid Riecken. 

For the closing conversation of this year's FotoWeekDC festival, we wanted to dedicate some time to a reminder of why most of us fell (and stayed) in love with photography, both as a profession and a passion. A photographer's career is a journey that requires constant adaptability to circumstances and unexpected turns surrounding the work they do. So, how do photographers get and stay inspired, year after year, project after project? Obviously there are no easy formulas, but we gathered a group whose work is as varied as their inspirations to engage in a frank discussion about what keeps them going and thriving in this increasingly challenging landscape. 

Festival farewell happy hour to follow.
