Jonah MarkowitzJonah Markowitz (b. 1986) is a Skidmore College athlete and business major turned visual storyteller and a Brooklyn raised Jew who loves all things pork. He currently works as a freelance photographer and cinematographer. Jonah focuses on the power of narrative within visual journalism with the intention of bringing communities together. His work has been published in the New York Times, The Washington Post, Al Jazeera America, Newsday, The Chronicle of Higher Education, among others and is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of the City of New York. Although work has brought Jonah around the world, he still lives in Brooklyn, and still loves his pork.

 

On this episode I chat with documentary photographer/filmmaker Jonah Markowitz about his documentary projects, portrait work, his background in air pollution research before his transition into photography, his grant with View Find, life as a freelancer, funding long-term projects, his feelings on multimedia and social, the importance of empathy in documentary work, and recognizing the lack of diversity and privilege of storytellers in the industry. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode of The Photo Brigade Podcast.
