about

Los Angeles based photographer Adrian White creates portraiture primarily dealing with memory, trauma and history from the perspective of people of the African diaspora. His goal is to connect with his ancestors by remembering the past, documenting the present and imagining a utopian future.

White was born and raised in the small tobacco and cotton town of Stantonsburg, NC. He studied at North Carolina Central University in Durham, NC (BA, 2002), Brooks Institute of Photography (BFA 2014) and Parsons School of Design (MFA 2019).

My photographic process places as much an emphasis on preserving memories as it does creating images. Memories have the power to heal. We just have to pay attention to what they're trying to tell us.
