Photography has long been a medium used to drive social and cultural change. The impact of documentary photography is immeasurable as both new and historic images play a role in how we see and interact with the world around us. 

As society has shifted in the 21st century, how has the photography industry changed? What’s next and what’s needed from this impactful industry?

We sat down with Polly Irungu, the founder of Black Women Photographers, and talented independent photographers Dee Dwyer and Alexis Hunley to discuss the stories behind some of their powerful images, how the photo industry can better support Black photographers and more.

Watch to learn:

  • How photography can be used as a tool for change 

  • The idea of image-making versus image-taking

  • Each speakers’ plans for 2021

  • Insights into how the photo industry can better support Black photographers
