Mia Nakano has her hands in everything from figuring out back end logistics, photography and lighting tech, editing films, web design, exhibition printer, lecturer, and underrated administrative powerhouse. She contributes to a multitude of organizations and to make social justice. Nakano was a co-founding member of Hyphen Magazine and her work has been featured in Colorlines, Motherjones.com, DemocracyNow!, and freethehikers.org. When she’s not cranking out her latest project, you can find her in the kitchen, darkroom, or building a terrarium out of found objects.
Nakano is the primary photographer, videographer, editor, web-mistress, and rampant facebooker behind the Visibility Project.
