Sarah Meister, Curator of Photography at The Museum of Modern Art, wants to answer your questions about photography in the world today. What does the first ever photograph of a black hole suggest about the relationship between science and art? In the wake of the recent devastating fire, can photographs of Notre Dame help us reflect on the role of art in our cultural heritage? How are photos on Instagram like (and unlike) those collected by museums? Who decides which photographs are significant in the world today?
You are invited to post your questions here between May 3–10. Sarah will be responding to questions through May 17.
