Diane Wah Bio

About The Artist

Diane Wah is a Haitian, New York City native whose photography "explores various notions of gender, racial coding, and cultural theory." Inspired by filmmakers such as Alfred Hitchcock, Spike Lee, and Stanley Kubrick and photographers like Weegee and Diane Arbus, Wah uses a combination of digital and film photography to experiment with her subject matter. Originally trained as an anthropologist taught to "document and then to file away," Wah challenges the concept of objectivity in her photography and asks the viewer to question, "What is fact?"
