April 12, 2011 during the reception for her new exhibition: Behind the Headlines at Through This Lens, Ami Vitale shared her ideas about how to make compelling and honest photographs. "Get to know your subject" is the best way to describe her philosophy. Ms . Vitale is very much a humanitarian. She has often photographed in difficult situations, but points out that life continues, and beauty is often just around the corner from the uglier side of life. Ms. Vitale encourages anyone interested in making good images to spend as much time as possible getting to know and to by known by the subjects. Her work proves that her approach works. Through This Lens is proud to have her work on display through June 11th of this year.
