Announcement from Director of Photography MaryAnne Golon:

I am thrilled to announce the homecoming of former staff photographer Dudley Brooks, who becomes The Washington Post Magazine’s new photo editor. Dudley will start July 28.

After a stellar 22-year career here as an award-winning photojournalist, Dudley left in 2005 to become the assistant managing editor for photography at The Baltimore Sun. Dudley established a multimedia production unit inside The Sun’s photo department while managing the 30-person team already there.  In 2007, Dudley moved to Chicago to become photo director for both Jet and Ebony magazines. In that role, he assigned photography and also produced many of his own features as a photographer and writer.

Dudley is also known for co-directing the well-regarded book and exhibition project,  “Songs of My People.”  Featuring the work of 53 black photographers, this portrait of African American life was published by Little Brown & Company and debuted as a photo exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in 1992.  Dudley has received recognition from the World Press Photo Foundation in Amsterdam, Visa Pour L’Image in Perpignan, the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights, and the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar.

Please join us welcoming Dudley back to The Post.
