Tiff J Sutton will be sharing her work through the end of June. 

Working within the discourse of abstract and figurative portraiture, I create photographs regarding selfhood and social movements. My work explores the unnerving possibility of multiple meanings, dual perceptions and limitlessness in the seemingly binary. Drawing repeatedly on Black feminism thought, I capture Black women with poise and naturalness that exudes a sense of ease. Photographed in classical studios, on - location domestic backdrops and neighborhoods, I am determined to catch every moment in the subjects’ life. Often beginning as a narrative portrait and ultimately becoming an abstract portrait, the image becomes an imprint of their visibility, their alterity gone.
