Intern Spotlight: Siyaka Taylor-Lewis

At Light Work, we appreciate the amazing energy and hard work of our interns and work-study students. From projects in the lab to the installations of our exhibitions, they truly help to make all that we do possible. We thought it would be nice to introduce some of our recent interns in a series of posts here on our blog.

Today, we’re happy to introduce you to Siyaka Taylor-Lewis!

What are your aspirations as an artist?

To make work that has a positive influence on the way African Americans are perceived/understood/view ourselves. To make work that I believe in and that I am proud of. To live a lifestyle that inspires people to be the best versions of themselves.

What do you like about Light Work?

Light Work is a community of people who care a lot about photography and the process. It is its own school, and not only teaches you about photography technically but politically, and in relationship to the outside world/art world. It’s actually very special.

What are you listening to right now?

Alfa Mist, Kendrick, my beats, Hiatus Kiayote, Bla6k, Thundercat, Dave East, The Internet, SIR, “Biking” by Tyler The Creator, “Feels Like Summer” by Childish Gambino.
