Nyia Sissac, is a portrait photographer based in Chicago,IL. She graduated from Columbia College Chicago, with a BA in photography. Her practice uses portraiture as a tool to document and tell a new unique definition of Blackness, creating a palette of colors and textures to make a conceptual story. She creates as a way to teach my fellow community that photography can be a tool that helps you heal. It helps you release emotions,
secrets, places that you have been and maybe haven’t experienced yet.
