“IN/VISIBLE” is an attempt to increase visual literacy by highlighting photographs made by individuals from groups underrepresented in mass media. Images by photographers of color from the Diversify Photo database are suspended from the ceiling in a way that allows the viewer to flip the print and learn the story behind each image. The back of each print is a window into the confluence of usually invisible forces that combine for an image to be created and seen, including camera, lighting and technical information, a portrait and short bio of the photographer, contextual information into how the image was made, funding sources and distribution channels, as well as a brief testimony of the barriers the photographer had to overcome to make the image.

    Diversify Photo

    Diversify Photo is a community of BIPOC and non-western photographers, editors, and visual producers working to break with the predominantly colonial and patriarchal eye through which history and the mass media has seen and recorded the images of our time. Our international online database is used by editors at major media outlets seeking to diversify their rosters of visual storytellers. We also create networking, exhibiting, speaking, community-building, and resource-sharing opportunities for our members.
