Ami Vitale: Updated Website

As TTP readers know, Ami Vitale is one of my favorite documentary photographers, and has been featured on many occasions on this blog. Ami worked on contract for National Geographic for many years, been published in all or most of the top-name media outlets, and won a ton of awards for her impressive work. She lived in India for almost 6 years out of which nearly 4 of those were spent in Kashmir.

Currently based in Miami, Ami believes in spending time on a story, and in living with the people she photographs. This, she says, has helped her to get beneath the surface of a story. During the Foundry Photojournalism Workshop in Manali, Ami and I shared some of the students in our respective classes, and I know she stressed that particular ethic during her instructions.

In any event, there are many posts on TTP on Ami, but she has recently updated her website which I encourage you to visit if you haven't done so already.
