Phiz Mezey ’48

Phiz Mezey has been a serious freelance photographer for almost 50 years, taking photographs while she raised a family as a working single parent (and recently retiring from a professorship at San Francisco State). Her work, most notably portraits of famous people, has been printed in Time, Collier’s, and many other journals of note; her photographs have been shown at museums and galleries worldwide; and she is the author of three books. She takes her camera wherever she goes in hopes of capturing the moment. At age 76, she still develops and prints her own images and has learned to work in Photoshop.

 

Said Nuseibeh ’81
One of themost significant projects that Palestinian American photographer Said Nuseibeh has undertaken was the first-ever, full-color photographic documentation of the original 7th-century Umayyad mosaics inside the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem. These photos were published in 1996 by Rizzoli in the U.S., then picked up by two other publishers abroad. “I want to challenge prevalent negative stereotypes; to empower creative identity by directly engaging cultural heritage, both physical and imaginative; to reduce Palestinian, Arab, and Muslim marginalization; and to promote tolerance,” he says. His work has been exhibited worldwide, most recently in Syria. His other current projects include black and white landscapes, which were exhibited this fall in his home city of San Francisco.
