Every year TIME magazine announces its Person of the Year, an often controversial nomination. This year the award was given to the journalists who work to reveal truths in a media landscape where false news has become more prominent. Paul Moakley is among those who steer this award. Now Editor at Large for Special Projects at TIME, Moakley has lent an editorial eye to the magazine as the deputy photo editor at TIME since 2010. In 2019, he will come to Fredrikstad to share his experience as a long-standing photoeditor and give us a glimpse of some of the tough choices he has needed to make to bring the truth forward.

Paul Moakley has been the deputy photo editor of TIME since 2010. He covers national news and special projects such as Person of the Year. Previously he was senior photo editor at Newsweek and photo editor of PDN (Photo District News). Moakley is an adjunct professor at the School of Visual Arts in New York City as well as a photographer and filmmaker.
