En Foco/StoryCorps Artist Interview: Manjari Sharma

We’re excited to bring you our Artist Interview project, presented by En Foco in collaboration with StoryCorps. This podcast features Manjari Sharma talking intimately with friend and sister-in-law, Theresa Sprague, about her family and blooming photography career in India, as well as her in depth exploration of photography in the United States. She shares images of her family and her early work so we can understand her creative journey and transformation as a person and photographer.

 

 

StoryCorps is one of the largest oral history projects – Since 2003, they have collected and archived more than 50,000 interviews with over 90,000 participants. Each conversation is recorded on a CD to share, and is preserved at the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress in order “…to remind one another of our shared humanity, to strengthen and build the connections between people, to teach the value of listening, and to weave into the fabric of our culture the understanding that everyone’s story matters.” http://www.storycorps.org

 

Stay tuned for more interviews, coming soon.
