Robb and Alesia Stubblefield hold their daughter, Katie, at their apartment in the Ronald McDonald House in Cleveland, Ohio, on 29 January 2018. This was months after Katie received a face transplant at the Cleveland Clinic in late 2017.
“Four Questions on Photography: Ilvy Njiokiktjien in Conversation With…” is a series of events where each month well-known photographers discuss with Ilvy their response to these questions:
  • What is your most important photograph, how did you make it, and what impact do you think it had?
  • What is your biggest photo failure; an image you wanted or needed but you messed up somehow?
  • What is your dream image or story?
  • What advice would you give to your younger self?

In this episode of the series, Ilvy is in conversation with Maggie Steber.
