Hi! I'm Maggie, and I've always loved stories. I'm the daughter of a librarian and a Shakespeare-enthusiast turned teacher, so I suppose you could say it's in my genes.
I think photography has the power to change minds, expand our world, and move people to action. I feel that good photography should not only move us, but be catalytic for change. Our industry should be inclusive, and as diverse as the people we photograph. For those of us born into privilege, it's our duty to examine our role more critically, listen and learn before jumping into different contexts, and to help amplify the voices of people already working for change.
I've worked with some incredible people in some pretty amazing places. You can find some of my work at The Thomson Reuters Foundation, The Lily, The New Humanitarian, denverpost.com, nola.com, and others. I was honored by the Thomson Reuters Foundation and Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition with the 2018 Food Sustainability Media Award for a photo essay examining solutions to childhood malnutrition in Rwanda, and I was a 2018 New York Rhodes Scholarship Finalist. I'm a 2019 IWMF reporting fellow for Rwanda, and will be attending the XXXII Eddie Adams Workshop as a student.
I am HEFAT certified through June 2023 by GJS.
Some of my favorite photographers are Nicole Tung, Kathleen Flynn, Tom Saater, Danielle Villasana, Stephanie Sinclair, Yagazie Emezi, Robin Hammond, Adriana Zehbrauskas, Justin Merriman, and Nichole Sobecki.
Currently, I'm based between New York and Kigali.
I'm always looking for ways to collaborate and learn, so please get in touch if you'd like to chat!
