testimonials

“Thank God for Evan Kriss. As an editor, curator and mentor, Evan did more than encourage a bold approach to Washington, D.C., she funded and published it. That’s hard to do, especially nowadays. She’s a woman with flare, impeccable taste, energy and an impressive knowledge of photography, art and culture. If you’re a young photographer, she’s the kind of editor that shapes you; if you’re a seasoned one, she’s the editor you wish you’d worked with all your life.”
Andrew Cutraro, Photographer

“I've been truly lucky to work with Evan Kriss, first at The New York Times Magazine and then at The Washington Post Magazine. Evan is one of the best editors I have ever worked with; her encouragement, direction and editing of my pictures always made the story better and helped me find its truth and beauty. I hope to work with Evan for many more years.”
Mark Peterson, Photographer

“Evan and I started working together early in my professional career on a variety of stories at The Washington Post Magazine. Whether the images were for a weekly column, a feature or a cover story, she was always eager to discuss my ideas as well as hers in terms of creative direction and approach. She was very honest and direct about what worked and what didn't. Through working with her I found where my passions and strengths lay and came out with a strong portfolio and a defined style.”
