Ohemaa Dixon is an 21 year old freelance photographer located in the NY area. Her work focuses on capturing moments of the black experience and narrative through the use of portraiture and fashion photography. She has had work featured in publications such as Glamour, ArtHoeCollective, PAUSE magazine and in multiple art spaces located in Syracuse, NY . Ohemaa loves to incorporate bright and vibrant color schemes in her work to conceptually think about the term “people of color”. She also loves experimenting with alternative mediums of photography such as 35mm film, and instant film because of the unique tones and meditative process.
Art is an important part of Ohemaa’ purpose and as a minority artist she wants to work to create opportunities for other minority artists to gain recognition and access in the art world through social activism and community outreach and support of avid artists of color. Ohemaa is currently a sophomore at Syracuse University pursuing a BFA in photography.
