Yanninia Marie

Mesa, Az

My name is Yanninia, and I am an artist living in the desert of Arizona. I consider myself an aimless wanderer in search of what it means to be human. I seek to explore the darkness within us, the struggles that we all face, and the very nature of humanity.
Many of my pieces are created using 19th-century photographic processes, as I often find the digital medium to be simply too cold and unfeeling. To me, there is just something so unique and human about using your hands to create, and by utilizing the darkroom, I can be personally, humanly involved in creating each of my pieces.

I hope you will join me on my quest to understand what it means to be human, and my struggles with darkness. I hope that together we can find a way to make it to tomorrow. //
