ARTIST STATEMENT | DIONNA BRIGHT

Being present in self-portraiture allows me to be fully authentic. In this space, I tell my story in addition to the narratives of my ancestors by emoting the fullness of our black experiences.

 

Photography is the medium by which I portray the multifacetedness of blackness and capture our history, existence, and potential.

 

I value connection to the moment; through composition, manipulation of light, attention to detail, props, expressive tones, and intentional color grading, I seek to captivate the viewer to perceive black temporality from a unique perspective.

 

My work seeks to empower the black individual and collective to introspect, heal, engage, and explore newness unapologetically.
