"Lauren Greenfield was named one of the top 10 directors in Adweek's Most Creative 100 People of 2015 and earlier this month she won an Emmy Award for Best TV Commercial for #likeagirl, which went viral and completely changed the meaning of ‘like a girl.' Lauren Greenfield is a prolific storyteller who takes important topics of the day and presents them in a way that is compelling, truthful, and thought-provoking. She is a powerful example for the PhotoPlus audience and a must-see at this year's show. "In addition," Ms. Wendle continued, "Dennis Keeley, along with a panel of experts will explore the evolution of street photography as it has emerged through social media to address the ‘global street' during the keynote presentation on Friday."</p>
