Robert ‘rx’ Fogarty is an entrepreneur, social activist, photographer, and documentarian who uses photography to help people see each other in new ways. He has photographed more than 50,000 people, ranging from Orlando Pulse nightclub survivors and Nobel Peace Prize winners to college freshmen, and Syrian refugees.

In every interaction, he believes one thing is consistent across religion, race, and language: every person has a story.

Prtrait by Dear World is Fogarty’s immersive keynote and photography workshop experience that draws on more than a decade of observation, research, and experience inside refugee camps, student unions, crowded markets, and Fortune 100 headquarters.

The Prtrait Process utilizes the camera as a conduit to build empathy, trust, and connection within an audience and includes a live photography demonstration from the stage. Every Prtrait keynote comes with customized learning objectives and opportunities for attendees to be photographed and photograph their fellow colleagues.

Robert Fogarty’s Speech Topics

  • The New Way to See Each Other

    Portraits are windows into ourselves. In this immersive and participatory experience, RX Fogarty takes the audience on a journey of reflection, sharing, and listening.

    Fogarty has photographed more than 50,000 people and his work has been published in more than 30 countries. In this immersive session, Fogarty explains the power a camera has to create deeper connections and photographs audience members live. After the session, all audience members are encouraged to visit the Prtrait Studio & Prtrait Prty to take their very own Prtrait and get behind the camera to photograph their fellow attendees.

    Learning Outcomes:

    • Participants will gain a deeper understanding of themselves.
    • Participants will learn that portrait photography is more about making a person comfortable than technical precision.
    • Participants will share and listen to meaningful stories from their colleagues.
