May is National Photography Month, and MakersPlace is ready to celebrate those artists who’ve captured our history, culture, joys, and sorrows.
Photography is a time machine that freezes and distills moments into pure gesture and emotion. Photographs — when candid, truthful, and heartfelt — are our best window into the lives and experiences of others. They allow us to peer through a pinhole at what life must have been like across time, back to the first photos of the 1830s.
To celebrate the impact that photography has had on our understanding of time and space, MakersPlace will highlight photographers from across genres and techniques throughout May. To kick things off, allow us to highlight a few photographers who couldn’t be more different from one another but who nonetheless stand out as singular visionaries.
Throughout May, we’ll be highlighting our favorite photographers from across MakersPlace. You should check in often because there are a lot of them!
