Ayanna Pressley, by Meredith Nierman

Meredith Nierman is Director of Photography and Executive Digital Producer at WGBH, Boston’s PBS and NPR hub. In this role, she oversees still photography for WGBH’s local efforts including the WGBH Newsroom and WGBH’s local TV, radio and online productions. Her own photography for WGBH appears regularly on NPR.org and PBS.org and has been featured in numerous publications including the Boston Globe, New York Times, Washington Post, San Francisco Chronicle, Denver Post, Sports Illustrated, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.

This past fall, Meredith embedded with Massachusetts Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley during her primary campaign against 20-year incumbent Michael Capuano and then again during Pressley’s first days in Washington, DC. The result of her time and the exclusive access she was given is a set of images that provides an alternative to the more typical visual coverage of politicians and a more intimate view into her campaign, historic win and first days in the District.

Paris Visone is a documentary photographer based in Boston. She graduated from The Art Institute of Boston where she was a faculty member.

Visone has traveled the globe with numerous musical icons including Marilyn Manson, Blondie, Toto, Godsmack, New Found Glory and Limp Bizkit. Bringing her unique style on the road, she captures a personal side of these musicians through her photographs that is rarely seen. She has also been featured in numerous publications such as Rolling Stone, Spin, Alternative Press, Zoom Magazine, Rangefinder, Real Simple, and GEO Magazine. She is represented for photographic syndication by Redux Pictures and is sponsored by Canon.

Documentary Matters 

Documentary Matters is an initiative of the Social Documentary Network and Digital Silver Imaging to provide a place for photographers to meet with others involved with or interested in documentary photography and discuss ongoing or completed project. This is a free and open meeting for anyone interested in presenting, viewing, or discussing documentary photography.

You don't need to be a professional, expert, or established--you just need to be committed to the documentary form and committed to learning from feedback from others. And you don't need to be a photographer or presenting your work to attend. Everyone is invited to join us, look, listen, and comment. Still photography, multimedia, and video encouraged. Documentary required.
