I am moderating and co-producing a panel event at The New School that shows how photographers and image-makers are creating a career pathway that corrects mis-representation and re-shapes the way we see ourselves in fashion and the media. This event will serve to identify and address the social and systemic issues that generate short-sighted, stereotypical images of marginalized individuals in the media, and introduce a new generation of photographers and image-makers who will share their creative journey and impart wisdom when it comes to creating your own lane in the industry.
