In December 2016, we were interviewed by photographer and writer Qiana Mestrich from Brooklyn, New York for her online magazine Dodge & Burn: Decolonizing Photography History. Qiana is interested in the aspect of decolonizing photography and seeking to “seeks to establish a more inclusive history of photography, highlighting contributions to the medium by people within underrepresented cultures.” Thank you Qiana for the opportunity to talk about Mãe Preta in English, so a wider audience can take part in this work .
