Kaylah Sambo

As a Queens, NY native I have always been surrounded by people of all kinds and, from a young age I was particularly interested in creating portraits. I started my film photography journey at the international center of photography at 13 and instantly fell in love with the process from start to finish, which influences my work in many ways. Film taught me, in a digital age, to slow down and sit with my art in every step of the process. I went to an amazing but predominantly white college, SCAD, which helped me to discover the most important aspect to my work is the representation of Black people. By exploring the multidimensionality of blackness, I am discovering myself.
