Photographer Maggie Steber: On critical thinking
Steber's message about critical thinking is simple: "[You're] going to get hired more quickly than somebody who is not doing that kind of homework." Speaking as a photo editor as much as a photographer, Steber stresses the need to make a "different kind of picture" in order to address the persistent issues of our times. Critical thinking is the key.
Maggie Steber's work appears regularly in National Geographic Magazine, The New York Times, Smithsonian, The Guardian of London and many other American and European publications. Her photographs are included in numerous museum and private collections including the Library of Congress. She has served as judge for World Press Photo Foundation and the Alicia Patterson Foundation as well as for other photographic and competitions.
