Yolanda Hoskey

ABOUT Yolanda

Yolanda Hoskey is a multi-disciplinary artist working between New York and Los Angeles.

Her work is driven by the notion that blackness is non-monolithic. Growing up, Yolanda would see the same archetypes of blackness portrayed in the media, contrary to the examples around her in her day-to-day life. She imagines a world where blackness is documented as multi-dimensional. In her images, she feels it necessary to visualize black people as dynamic, soft, free, and unapologetic, using a mixture of portraiture, documentary, and fashion photography as tools to reflect these ideas. As an image maker, Yolanda aims to create a truer, more nuanced catalog of the black identity.
