Reza will bring his unique voice and photography to students, faculty and the greater San Diego community, exploring “A Dream of Humanity.”

A philanthropist, idealist and humanist, Reza’s career began with studies in architecture. He has gone on to become a renowned photojournalist who, for the last three decades, has worked all over the world, most notably for National Geographic.

His assignments have taken him to over 100 countries as a witness to humanity’s conflicts and catastrophes, and has been celebrated internationally through media, a series of books, exhibitions and documentaries made for the National Geographic Channel.
