Born in Alabama and based in Los Angeles, photographer and filmmaker Rikkí Wright explores notions of Blackness, femininity, beauty, and community. Her photos are finished with a distinctive warm color grade—a nod to the sepia tones of the colors she admired in her grandmother’s house growing up, and an outward manifestation of the warmth she feels toward her subjects. Rikkí has presented her films and artworks in Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York, Philadelphia, and London, among other cities. We spoke to Rikki about her ongoing series “Sis,” an exploration of Black sisterhood, and her larger mission to reclaim the narrative of Black femininity.
