Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson by Lelanie Foster

The confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court is undoubtedly one of the most significant moments in modern history. To commemorate this milestone, the White House tapped photographer Lelanie Foster for Justice Brown Jackson’s official portrait. EBONY spoke with the lenswoman after she photographed the trailblazer following her extraordinary bipartisan Senate confirmation. In an exclusive interview done just moments after capturing this image, the Bronx creative shared her thoughts with EBONY on being selected to capture this historic portrait and how her work centering identity and Black women is intrinsically intertwined in this assignment.
