Zakkiyyah Najeebah (b. 1991) is a Chicago based visual artist , educator, and independent curator.  The aesthetic components and intersectional cultural advancements that are entirely unique to the black shared experience is a primary concern of hers. Zakkiyyah uses photographic imagery and new media to address the politics and aesthetic values of representation, inclusivity, black womanhood, family histories, and collective narratives. Often her work takes place in the realm of portraiture, documentation, image-making, and educating. She is currently building a visual catalog that articulates current and past social concerns regarding black narratives, while also exploring new methods of  visual presentation. Zakkiyyah is also a Co-founder of  EXPOSURE:  a photographically centered mission that prioritizes shared experiences and concerns by photo artists of the Black diaspora.
