about

shiloh burton, created the Identity Intelligence Institute in 2005 and has been actively engaged in the practice of photography for 29 years, exhibiting nationally since 2000. shiloh's core artistic practice provides platforms to elevate and share stories, voices, and lived experiences in order to heal in community. She "makes" rather than "takes" photographs of the people who volunteer and choose to be framed by her camera. Engaging in photography as an intervention strategy, shiloh facilitates social discourse through live portrait workshops. Through Body as Projected Site people are celebrated, rendered beautiful, worthy and important in an act of self-determination witnessed in community. Moreover, she creates environments to serve as contexts in making and exhibiting her images.

She teaches both analog and digital photography, digital storytelling, digital video arts, and AP 2-D Studio Art at Irvington High School. In addition, she was the Director of the New Media Arts Academy (NMAA) 2009-2016. Ms. Burton designed the NMAA to support struggling students in its mission to equip students with the skills and tools necessary to be sought after media artists who choose their own path in the artistic and/or corporate worlds, and are empowered to speak truth through new media upon graduation.
