Back in 2020, amidst Black Lives Matter protests, Repicture host Nyasha Kadandara noticed the gatekeepers of storytelling proclaiming “hire black”. This caused her to reflect on photographers who document their own communities. In this episode Nyasha and co-host Tasneem Alsultan ask four photographers how they strive to accurately represent and document their own communities that are often misrepresented in the media.

Featuring Patience Zalanga, Fabiola Ferrero, Barry Christianson and Andrea Bruce.
