As an openly gay and disabled man, Joey Solomon’s artistic work hones in on the psychology of self and other humans through portrait studies and darkroom accidents using the lens as his medium. Solomon pulls much of his work perspective from personal entanglements in recurring themes of mental and physical illness. His images continue to document motifs surrounding familial shared illness, queer view and the erosion of our Earth. If nothing else, Solomon’s work serves to affirm a learning process of our tender and dysfunctional species. In May of 2019, Joey Solomon earned his BFA in Photography & Imaging from NYU’s Tisch School of The Arts. Prints of Solomon’s have been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally. Solomon is currently working as an assistant and archivist for Jeffrey Henson Scales of the New York Times.
