Welcome Allan deSouza!

The Department of Art Practice welcomes photographer and writer Allan deSouza who joined us this fall! Rigorously innovating photography through his uses of collage, rephotography, narrative strategies borrowed from other media, and digital interventions, deSouza’s creative research suggests new frameworks for thinking about race, visuality, and representation in a global context. An experienced teacher, deSouza has taught at the Art Institute of Chicago, the California Institute of the Arts, UC Irvine, Vermont College, and San Francisco Art Institute.
