Texas Isaiah (born in Brooklyn, NY; currently lives and works in Los Angeles, Oakland, and New York) is a visual narrator. The intimate works he creates center the possibilities that can emerge by inviting individuals to participate in the photographic process. He is attempting to shift the power dynamics rooted in photography to display different ways of accessing support in one’s own body. Texas Isaiah’s work has been exhibited in spaces including Fotografiska, New York; Aperture Foundation Gallery, New York; Charlie James Gallery, Los Angeles; UTA Artist Space, Los Angeles; Residency, Los Angeles; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; The Kitchen, New York; and The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York. Selected interviews, articles, and commissions include British Vogue, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Adweek, Artforum, Them, The FADER, VSCO, Vice, LALA Magazine, and Cultured magazine. He is one of the 2018 grant recipients of Art Matters and the 2019 recipient of the Getty Images: Where We Stand Creative Bursary grant.
