I co-founded The Documentarian in May 2020 with my partner Telo Hoy. I am an acquisitions editor, as well as an artistic editor. Together, we collaborate on developing themes for each issue, the order of the articles as well as the pairings of photos and text.
The Documentarian was founded on this idea of an “artistic documentary” genre, to take news-worthy stories and turn them into timeless pieces. We want to constantly be having conversations about what is happening in the world, as well as questioning what we know and how we can shift our perspectives on issues.
We also have organized two online talks so far, which gave contributors the opportunity to speak with each other about what they had written about.
