During the Egyptian revolution I was a medic, but I knew being a physician would only be a job for me and never my passion. I was not a photographer at that time, but I witnessed many stories on the front line of the revolution as they happened, in real time. What I witnessed was strong enough to move me, to make me see what millions in my country were not able to see. For me, photography is...

There are a lot of answers I could give to this question—technical, clinical, artistic—but for me, being a young black woman in New York, at this time in our country’s history, I feel a responsibility to get different stories out; stories from different perspectives, not just my perspective. Photography is an opportunity and it’s a responsibility and I think about that all the time. —...

This year marks the anniversary of the shooting date of two iconic photographs, taken at the same location, forty years apart. In 1958, Art Kane created the image that has come to be known as “A Great Day in Harlem.” The photo presented fifty-seven of the world’s greatest jazz musicians gathered on a stoop on East 126th Street, in Harlem, New York City.

What to do with all the pictures? This is one of the thorniest questions facing an active image maker with a sizable, and probably still growing, collection of photographs and/or motion footage, plus other contributing materials that add context to a life behind the lens. In an ideal world, as pictures accumulate, a collection evolves into an archive; yet many photographers lack awareness of this...

Some years ago, I stumbled upon a book called The Photographic Instruction Book, by Townsend T Stith © 1903. The book was filled with all sorts of advice on how to take successful photographs using the tools and technologies of the day. Surprisingly, many of the Mr. Stith’s suggestions, including advising against taking pictures from moving bicycles, hold true today. I especially enjoyed reading...
