This spring, the programming for the Munroe Center for Social Inquiry is a podcast series. “The Careful Photograph” features contemporary photographers of color who are pushing the medium and posing important questions around race and identity. Each episode starts with a visual description of a single photograph by the artist, and then explores how the work in question works against expected tropes.
