500px Interviews Daniella Zalcman, Why We Need Women in Photojournalism #celebratephotography #WHM17 #WomensHistoryMonth

Great interview with Danielle Zalcman from 500px:

Daniella Zalcman is a photojournalist and multiple Pulitzer Center grantee who could have been satisfied with great news assignments from some of today’s top newspapers and magazines—but she has chosen instead to unite her talent with purpose and passion, focusing her photographic efforts on exploring the effects of colonization on native peoples and expanding opportunities for female photographers with her website (announced last month), Women Photograph.

500px: March 8 is International Women’s Day. You have created a website, Women Photograph, devoted to women. Why was it important to you to create this database focused on female photographers?

Daniella Zalcman: There’s a major diversity problem in the photojournalism world right now. (Probably across most subgenres of photography, but I’m intimately familiar with the documentary photography world so I’ll speak to that.) That’s a huge problem. Photojournalists are responsible for how we see the rest of the world—it’s how we access imagery of people we may never meet and places we may never visit. If we want to document those people and places with nuance and sensitivity, we need to be doing it as a diverse community of storytellers.

We #celebratephotography here at Adafruit every Saturday. From photographers of all levels to projects you have made or those that inspire you to make, we’re on it! Got a tip? Well, send it in!

If you’re interested in making your own project and need some gear, we’ve got you covered. Be sure to check out our Raspberry Pi accessories and our DIY cameras.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
