Competing Desires explores the influence of photographic culture on our identity, its imposing and often contradictory expectations of women. Forging into the darkness of my competing desires I confront and explore the trappings of consumerism, motherhood, and identity.

The sculptures are made with found and created photographs, material waste, household objects. Fastening the disparate elements together to identify these powerful external forces, I investigate the narratives that flow between these real and imagined realities.

Each piece in this series is sold mounted to Dibond with a UV, archival luster laminate, in a hand painted, custom maple frame. They are in edition of 3 with 2 Artist Proofs each.

Naomi White is a feminist, artist, and educator, working on ideas at the intersection of political ecology and photography. Focusing on the transformative power of photography to affect desire and change, much of her work questions how we can shift our focus away from the current racist, capitalist model of domination to one of equity and collective voice, for the sake of all people, animals and the planet. White is the winner of PDN’s Objects of Desire award, and a recent finalist for the Hopper Prize. She has attended several artist residencies, and exhibited throughout North America and Europe, including at the art fairs Scope, Art Basel Miami, and Photo LA. Her work has been published in PDN, The Brooklyn Rail, Cut Me Up Magazine, Uncertain States, among others. White holds an MFA in Photography and Related Media from SVA in New York, a Post Baccalaureate in Photography from the San Francisco Art institute, and a BA in English Literature from San Francisco State. She is currently the Chair of photography at the New York Film Academy in Burbank, California.
