As photographers, we have a moral obligation to listen to and understand a story first before trying to tell it. But are we considering how our perspectives or personal experiences may affect our approach to telling the story?
This guide features first-hand accounts, valuable insights and learned lessons from industry leaders Tara Pixley, Laylah Amatullah Barrayn, Hannah Reyes Morales, Tailyr Irvine, Danielle Villasana, Mengwen Cao and Jovelle Tamayo.
Inside, you’ll find:
- Definitions and historical context for issues related to photographing race, gender, the Global South and more
- Ideas for how to engage more generously with communities that are not your own
- A list of helpful resources and questions photographers should ask themselves before their next project
Regardless of your photographic specialty or background, every photograph benefits from a more knowledgeable, conscientious and thoughtful photographer behind the lens.
