Between 1936 and 1966, the Negro Motorist Green Book was a list of safe places for Black people during their travels throughout the segregated USA. Founded in 2020, the Photographer’s Green Book, in that tradition, started as a list of resources to navigate the photographic community, which has historically denied the voices of those other than predominantly white cis male artists. This work expands on the original Green Book’s target audience to include other individuals whose voices have been under-supported or underrepresented in academic and arts institutions.
