“Every individual in my photographs has her own or his own story to tell. But sadly we come from spaces in which most black people never had that opportunity… I’m not [here] to speak for the people, but to share and change the portrayal of black bodies… It’s about time that we bring positive imagery of us in space where we are there, but hardly seen.” —Zanele Muholi

    As we gear up for Bearing Witness, a photography symposium featuring participants such as Mike Krieger of Instagram and Kathy Ryan of The New York Times Magazine (see the full list of participants and RSVP to watch the live stream here), it feels like a perfect moment to highlight the current state of photography through the submissions of artwork from you, our creative online community.
This week, we invite you to submit your original photographs for #SubmissionFriday!

    How have social media, digital cameras, and amateur photojournalism altered the way photographs capture the everyday, define current events, and steer social and political movements?

    These ideas will be discussed a week from today at Bearing Witness, a photography symposium convened by SFMOMA with leaders in the field of photography from Instagram, Wired, The New York Times, Magnum Photos, and Yale University.
