Tawny Chatmon


Tawny Chatmon is a photographer and artist who mixes mediums to create striking, ethereal images of black women and girls.

“The Awakening” focuses on familial bonds, motherhood, fatherhood & celebration of childhood. Loosely inspired by the work of Marianne Stokes whose portraits often showed the fine details of garments that were floor length and embroidered. As with all of my work, the production of this series began with a portrait sitting. Photographs are the first layer of which I manipulate and unite with other photographic components.
