Steph Foster

Step Foster is an interdisciplinary artist specializing in photography with interests in video, installation, music, digital fabrication, sculpture and performance. His recent work combines sound and music with visual media to tell stories of mass incarceration and reconciliation within urban communities.

Kris Graves

Kris Graves is an artist and publisher based in New York and California. Graves creates artwork that deals with societal problems and aims to use art as a means to inform people about cultural issues. Using a mix of conceptual and documentary practices, Graves photographs the subtleties of societal power and its impact on the built environment.

Sheldon Omar-Abba

Sheldon Omar-Abba’s work straddles the line between practicing artist and creative facilitator. His projects are often collaborations between artists, institutions and communities focused on documentation, and collective storytelling. He currently uses film photography as an access point for relationship building and discussions around topics of identity, race, and social justice.
