COVER STORIES
20 Mireille Liong-A-Kong

21 Bruce McNeil

22 Jason Miccolo Johnson

23 Camille Moseley-Pasley

Similar to our August - October 2005 issue, this edition features four creative persons. Like champion race drivers sharing their driving skills with an average commuter, these gifted photographers share their secrets in capturing perfect moments.

We feature New York-based Mireille Liong-A-Kong, and Washington-based Bruce McNeil, Jason Miccolo Johnson, and Camille Mosley-Pasley. Johnson and Mosely-Pasley have shot images that have graced our covers.

Unlike singers and dancers, photographers are too often overlooked as contributors to African culture and identities. Port of Harlem is very proud to continue our tradition of highlighting aspects of our lives that many, including ourselves, so often fail to embrace or even appreciate. I hope to see you at the next photography exhibit!
