Narayan Mahon is an award winning commercial and editorial photographer based in Madison, Wisconsin. His editorial work focuses on issues of statelessness and identity, which are represented in a book project, Lands in Limbo, about unrecognized countries in the world. Other projects have included a portrait series about state-censored writers in Turkey, Greenland’s independence movement and the US Presidential elections. His commercial work is also multifaceted, having done campaigns for Crowne Plaza Hotel in Kuwait, Nike and industrial projects like the Marmaray Tunnel project in Turkey.

Narayan’s editorial work has appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, Virginia Quarterly Review, The Economist, The New York Times, National Public Radio (US), Times of London, The Guardian, Global Post, USA Today, Ventiquattro (Italy), Focus (Germany) and PowerHouse Magazine, among many other national and international publications.

Photography as a Political Contribution

One thought I had this year was to try and donate some photography services as a campaign contribution (I don’t have the cash to give, but offering a service, I think, would be meaningful and useful contribution. But then the thought came across my mind about conflicts of interest, and if I wanted to get editorial work related to the upcoming elections, would I then rule myself out? I am sure a lot journalists donate to a campaign, but what about donating your craft? Does that cross the line?
Anyone else had this thought or come across this dilemma?
