Dominican alumna Michelle Agins was profiled in the New York Times, where she has been a photographer for more than three decades. Agins' work will be showcased in a retrospective this fall at the Photoville Festival in New York, September 18 - December 1. 

A Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, Agins captures stories what would otherwise be untold. Her career started when she was a pre-teen and captured a murder in her Chicago neighborhood, making her realize that news photography could provide evidence and tell important stories in Black, working class communities like her own. 

According to the article, Agins, as one of the first Black photographers at the Times, "served as an emissary for the paper in a way that few Black journalists of previous generations had an opportunity to do."
