(New York, b. 1971)
Creates portraits which challenge stagnant and negative narratives about people of color. Via photography, Airitam offers a remarkable look into a reality not based upon limiting constraints of the narrow media bias, but instead, highlights the necessity and beauty of diversity in culture.
Airitam was recently featured at San Diego Art Institute's exhibition "ABOUT-FACE." She is also the subject of “Haarlem to Harlem” a short film focused on her portrait series, The Golden Age. Her work delves into issues of representation of people of color, stereotypes, and questioning the validity of racial traditions.
She currently lives and works out of San Diego.
