Brent Lewis is a Photo Editor based out of New York City, co-founder of Diversify.Photo and from the greatest city in the world Chicago. South Side to be exact.

Brent is a photo editor at The New York Times working on the Business Desk, assigning visual coverage of technology, the economy, and auto industry.

Brent was a Photo Editor at The Washington Post. Formerly, he was the Senior Photo Editor of ESPN’s The Undefeated, where he drove the visual language of the website that is based around the intersection of sports, race, and culture. Before joining the turning his life over to photo editing, he was a staff photojournalist with stints at The Denver Post, The Rockford Register Star and the Chillicothe Gazette.  Through the years his photos have been used by the Chicago Tribune, L.A. Times, Associated Press, Forbes, and Yahoo! News.

Once Brent decided to follow his passion and become a full-time photojournalist, he transferred to Columbia College Chicago, home of greats like John H. White and Dawoud Bey. At the Columbia Chronicle, the weekly student newspaper, he established himself as a go-to for all assignments whether they were sports, political events, spot news or just a feature to fill up a page. After graduating in 2012 and a short, uneventful stint freelancing, he realized that the life of a staffer was way more his speed.
