Naomi White is a feminist, artist, and educator, working on ideas at the intersection of ecology and photography.
Focusing on the transformative power of photography to affect desire and change, much of her work questions how we can shift our focus away from the current racist, capitalist model of domination, to one of equity and collective voice, for the sake of all people, animals and the planet.
Her work has been published in PDN, The Brooklyn Rail, FAYN, and Uncertain States. White holds an MFA in Photography and Related Media from SVA in New York, a Post Baccalaureate in Photography from the San Francisco Art institute, and a BA in English Literature from San Francisco State.
