Oriana Koren is a photo-ethnographer, a writer and a researcher. I began my editorial photography career by researching and documenting the contributions African descendants have made to American cuisine and foodways. My approach to editorial photography centers the perspectives of formerly colonized people and communities, by re-framing my image-making process using anthropology methodologies and rigorous personal research. I am also an activist, having co-founded the Authority Collective, founded a new photo award, the Lit List, and recently, co-authored and wrote the glossary for the Photo Bill of Rights.
