Delphine Diallo is a New York City-based French/Senegalese visual artist and photographer.
Graduating from the Académie Charpentier School of Visual Art in Paris, she started working in the music industry as a video editor and graphic designer, yet, storytelling through portraiture seemed to be always calling her. Then, in 2008 she relocated to New York to pursue photography.
Her career was boosted with a being mentored by wildlife photographer Peter Beard, a chance encounter with comedian Chris Rock that lead to working with him on the Total Blackout Tour, and a collaboration with artist Shepard Fairey on his “We The People” poster project.
Delphine’s work is defined by immersing herself in the study of anthropology, mythology, religion, science, and martial arts. We recently stopped by Delphine’s Brooklyn studio to talk about her work.
