Cory Richards has spent years working in the strata of both commercial image-making and National Geographic journalism. His early career was defined by his ability to put his body where others can’t or won’t. Now he is trying to reach beyond the entrenched tropes of the paradigm of “shooting” and forge his own path. Richards is in search of unexpected confluences, the nexus of subject areas where we might find productive discourse to shift our thinking around important issues of the day. As he puts it, “It’s time to say what needs to be said and pick projects that actually move the dial.” Richards’ focus now is on the gentleness required to bring people into intimacy, to invite viewership and participation.
