"My recent work for The New Yorker was for the release of Robin Coste Lewis’s poetry collection. I wanted to convey a “Now’s the time” vibe. It’s Lewis’s time, it’s her work, it’s her stories on Western depictions of black women that are readily available for the public. Lewis needed to look powerful, certain, proud, and humble all at once. The pose played a large role in conveying this vibe." Tony Rodriguez
