Sheila Pree Bright joins the podcast this week to talk about hip hop photography! Her work is focused on her interest of individuals lives and communities that are often not seen or highlighted. Her goal is to give people a voice so that others can hear the unheard stories about issues that are consuming their lives. She steps outside of the boundaries of photography and traditional media to emphasize stories about social, political, and historical aspects.
She is a well-established artist with an MFA from Georgia State University and a BS from the University of Missouri. Her work has been featured in many exhibits and awarded many times. She is also the author of her book, #1960Now: Photographs of Civil Rights Activists and Black Lives Matter Protests. Listen to this week’s episode for an in-depth discussion of Sherri’s amazing work.
