FSB073: Piper Carter – Part 2

March 27, 2009

Today we continue our discussion with fashion and editorial photographer Piper Carter. As an African American female, making it in the world of the high stakes, high pressure world of fashion photography has its challenges. Piper shares what it was like in her career coming up through the ranks as an assistant (often times the only African American and/or the only female), and the trials that entailed. Or the interesting comments she gets now when she meets with ADs and other potential clients who didn’t know she was African American ahead of time. As we continue the discussion of African American themes, I get Piper’s take on the controversy surrounding the stereotypes in Tyler Perry’s films. Lastly, before I let her go, I ask her what’s the deal with soft-porn style ads of teen age girls in magazines like Teen Vogue.No matter who you are, I’m confident you’ll appreciate her take on these various issues, particularly he insight into Hollywood.

    Hi Piper

    I just listened to your F-Stop beyond interview. It was one of the most thought provoking interview I’ve ever heard from a photographer!!! Thanks for leaving me with thoughts on what kind of artist and influencer I want to be as a black photographer. I just wish I heard this interview earlier so I could have picked up Essence magazine. Congrats on your latest award.

    Ron, as usual you bring out questions from photographers that we would otherwise might not know through their work.
