Hi! I'm Maggie, and I've always loved stories. I'm the daughter of a video producer turned librarian, and an actor and 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 photography should not only move us, but be catalytic for change. It should be inclusive and as diverse as the people it often represents. For those of us born into privilege, it's our duty to examine our role more critically in helping elevate the voices of people silenced, and find ways to amplify real change-makers.
I've worked in some pretty amazing places (New Orleans, Philly, Denver, Rome, Kigali, the West Bank), and have been published in print including features in The Denver Post, The Times-Picayune, and Where Rome; and online by the Thomson Reuters Foundation, AJ+, denverpost.com, and nola.com. My photography has also been featured on CNN and ABC World News. 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.
Some of my favorite photographers are Yagazie Emezi, Robin Hammond, Stephanie Sinclair, Nicole Tung, Kathleen Flynn, Adriana Zehbrauskas, Tom Saater, Danielle Villasana, 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!
