Raised in South Africa and Rwanda, Kenyan born, and now a Kigali based documentary photographer and filmmaker, Tracy Keza uses her work to explore notions of identity, culture, and conservation. With an academic background in Environmental Science from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, she hopes to use the power of visual storytelling and filmmaking as a tool for the fight for justice and equity. Tracy currently works as a filmmaker at MASS Design Group. Prior to joining MASS Design Group, Tracy worked at 72andSunny as a creative resident where she and nine other artists created a collaborative storytelling platform to address mass incarceration and the challenges formerly incarcerated people face upon re-entering society. As a documentary photographer and multimedia artist, Tracy Keza uses a cross between fine art and documentary photography to challenge existing stereotypes of the “other.” In January 2016, Tracy was selected as the artist- in-residence for Studio Revolt, an award-winning collaborative media lab currently engaged in international collaborative work. Her photography-based project “Hijabs and Hoodies” was being incubated with Studio Revolt and was activated in the Washington DC area in the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center’s CROSSLINES: A culture lab on Intersectionality.
