The basic premise behind Letitia Huckaby's work is faith, family and legacy. It is a time capsule for the African-American experience. A photographer at heart, each piece starts with an image and progresses from there to morph into dresses, quilts, or framed quilt tops. Huckaby loves to push the boundaries of photography, looking at how the past relates to the present, and whether or not things have changed or remain the same. There is always a history built into the pieces, whether through process or actual materials. Images are printed onto cotton fabric, hand-stitched together or framed in embroidery hoops. Huckaby uses a traditional practice in an untraditional way, creating a new visual language.
