TOPIC is looking for a talented, motivated photo intern to assist with editing, research, and other visual responsibilities.

Recent graduate or current student preferred
Passion for photography, art, and new media
Thorough researching skills
An interest in creative storytelling and a desire for discovery
Good communication skills
