Photographer and educator Wendy Ewald is known for her documentary-style investigations of places and communities, which probe questions of identity and cultural differences. Ewald collaborates with children, families, and women around the world, often encouraging them to use cameras to record themselves, their families, and their communities. In these image-making collaborations, Ewald challenges the concept of who is the photographer and who the subject, who is the observer and who the observed.

Professor Ewald has taught at Bard College and Duke University. She created the Literacy through Photography program in 1989. She is the recipient of numerous awards including a MacArthur Fellowship, several National Endowment for the Arts grants, and the Lila Wallace Reader’s Digest Visual Arts Fellowship.
