Show Notes

Tara Pixley is an assistant professor of visual journalism at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. As a scholar of lens-based media, she works at the intersection of journalism studies, visual culture and critical race, gender and queer theory, particularly as it relates to re-visioning oppressed populations in the digital new(s) media sphere.

She is an award-winning journalist, filmmaker and photographer who co-founded Reclaim Photo and Authority Collective — two organizations dedicated to de-colonizing visual media industry and individual practices. Her film and photographic work intersects with her scholarship, each addressing the problematics of representation and the possibility of contemporary visual media to reimagine historically misrepresented/underrepresented communities.

Dr. Pixley’s published written and photographic work has appeared in the New York Times, Newsweek, ProPublica, Nieman Reports, PhotoVoice, ESPN Magazine, Scholastic, Billboard and many more news outlets. Her commercial clients include Footlocker, Wells Fargo, Nike, Cushman Wakefield, MilkLife and many others. She is currently working on a book chronicling the move toward equity and inclusion in the visual journalism industry.
