The photograph was unstaged: photographer Ayana V. Jackson was visiting the hotel and asked the two little girls if she could take their picture. Just as Jackson was taking the photograph, the girl on the left raised her own camera, turning the tables: Jackson, an African-American born in New Jersey, was lifting her camera to capture Africa, and Africa turned its own camera back on her.Read Less

Her intensely focused images bear confrontational subjects that challenge the viewer's preconceived notions.
