A conversation with Johis Alarcón about her visual storytelling practice and her new book, I am black because the sun looked at me.
I had the privilege of interviewing Johanna 'Johis' Alarcón, a freelance visual storyteller based in Ecuador. In the interview, we discussed her recent photo book, I am black because the sun look at me, and her impactful work focusing on social justice, human rights, and identity. We explore her transition from being a photographer to a visual storyteller, her storytelling process, and the power of visuals in understanding the past and present.
