Rhea Dillon is a south London born visual artist. Working in film, photography and installations she uses her lens to amplify blackness. Through films such as PROCESS (a poetic rendering about the management of black hair) and Black Angel (a protest for black freedom and expression), as well as her photography series SISTAHS (a love letter to black sisterhood and friendship), Dillon ruminates on personal stories and extends them into the wider world. Manifesting the strength of the black diaspora, Dillon’s work carries a presence, which is both urgent and reflective. It fills out space in a world which often tries to minimise – even remove – black voices.
