Why Frederick Douglass Loved Photography
From The New Yorker:
"Douglass was photographed a lot because he was famous, but also because he was fascinated with photography."
"Douglass believed photography would set his people free by telling the truth about their humanity."
I got a lot of criticism about including the politics of photography in the original A Lesser Photographer manifesto, but it's becoming clear the camera is joining the pen in being mightier political tools than the sword.
