Negotiated Photography

Quite often to get the image they want, photographers have to be given access to a particular place, whether it be a music venue, a building site or back stage at a prestigious event.

Native New-Yorker, Visual journalist and photographer Sarah Naomi Lewkowicz captures upsetting images of a young woman battling a heroin addiction. In order to create these powerful images Sarah negotiated access to certain places, for example back stage at the strip club, which is the woman’s place of work. It would seem she also grew close to the woman she focused on, as the woman has allowed Sarah into her home to take personal images.
