his work explores gender, race, and sexuality by inviting the sitter to participate in the photographic process. the invitation constructs a space to begin and continue collaborative visual dialogues about legacy, self-empowerment, emotional justice, protection, and topophilia (the affective bond between people and place). texas isaiah is invested in the possibilities of what it can mean to be seen, loved, and cared for when you have your photograph taken.
texas isaiah has exhibited numerous spaces including the hammer museum (los angeles), the kitchen (nyc), the studio museum in harlem (nyc), charlie james gallery (los angeles), slought foundation (philadelphia), and new space center for photography (portland).
