André Daughtry is an artist from Brooklyn, New York currently working on his MFA in the Photography and Media Program at The California Institute of the Arts. “My work is an investigation into the role of images and words in public spaces that are intended to take on many functions in the visual culture of contemporary society. Images and words are found to be employed in tandem to function in any number of ways from proposing/promoting political ideologies, to addressing social realities, from introducing consumer products to the public, to inciting revolutionary change in any given socio-political domain. The uses of photographic images along with words have become a ubiquitous part of societies acquisition of information, formation of knowledge, and expression of opinion in the last 100 years.” André is very interested in work that brings ideas of a critical nature about the particular relationship between image and text by using various populists media (i.e. T-shirts, posters, postcards, etc…).
