ABOUT US


Diversify is a verb. It is an action - an intentional movement to break with the predominantly colonial and patriarchial eye through which history and the mass media has seen and recorded the images of our time. Diversify was born out of a recognition that calling for more diversity in the photo industry is not enough. To diversify photo, we need to equip Art Buyers, Creative Directors, and Photo Directors with resources to discover photographers of color available for assignments and commissions. 

For complete access to the database with more information about each photographer - including contact information, self-identified ethnicity, language(s) spoken, and areas of expertise - please email us at diversify.photo@gmail.com

Diversify is an initiative from Brent Lewis and Andrea Wise with help from Jehan Jillani, Jen Samuel, and Elijah Walker. Thanks to Dudley M. Brooks, Michael Wichita, and Elizabeth Krist.
