Research of Black Photography

Help research and secure image reproductions and permissions for two book projects centered on race, gender, and photography. Research the history of photography through the lens of collaboration rather than individual authorship. Potential photographic projects from across the African diaspora that model different versions of collaboration. This includes locating images, researching artists/photographers, and assembling short descriptions.

Both projects place questions of race, gender, and power at the center.
