P112: Periodically Recommends: Techies by Helena Price

Short and sweet this week: you owe it to yourself to check out Techies, a series of portraits and interviews from Helena Price that tell the stories of those underrepresented in the tech industry. In Price’s own words:

”I started this project with two main goals: I wanted to show the outside world a more comprehensive picture of people who work in tech. I also wanted to bring a bit of attention to folks in the industry whose stories have never been heard, considered or celebrated.”

The photography is stunning and the interviewees are generous to share their lived experiences in the frequently homogenous world of technology. Give it a try: you can view the project in full or follow along one story per day on Medium.

And if you, like me, frequently find a trip to the office to be similar to gazing into a mirror, maybe Techies will be a starting point for imaging what a more inclusive future would be like.

Periodically yours,

Bob Sherron
