Kierra Branker is a photographer and artist based in Brooklyn, NY. She has recently graduated from Parsons School of Design, receiving her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography.
Living in a Trinidadian-American household, Branker has always noticed the gaps and connections between the two cultures. Motivated by the cultural markers that help to formulate self-identity, her goal is to create works that reflect the shared heritage of the African Diaspora. Her two most recent shows include Paradice Palase’s Summer Open Call for which she received a juror’s award, and the Parsons Photography BFA Thesis Exhibition. Kierra was awarded a Dean’s scholarship while at Parsons.
