texas isaiah is a visual narrator from brooklyn, ny. he currently resides in los angeles, san francisco, and oakland.
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.
