I came across Kent’s images some time ago and was drawn particularly to his capture of black bodies, often minimal but yet beautifully highlighting dark hues.

Ara Guler’s Anatolia

Turkey’s most well-known photographer, has taken more than 800,000 photographs documenting Turkish culture and important historical sites.  Featured are photographs of medieval Seljuk and Armenian buildings that Güler, who is now eighty-five years old, took in the early 1960s and printed in 1965.

You know what really gets to me, and I’m sure many know this, is the blatant abuse and betrayal that white photogs display in POC countries. Every time a photo has gotten famous like this photo did in history, the actual focus of the photo is left behind in the dust while the white photog is hailed as a hero for displaying the ills of that country. He didn’t even fucking ask her name. He didn’t ask for 17 years. The world knew nothing about her life and her story. He captured one moment that made him famous and she got nothing.

Every time I see this photo, I seethe.
