Samantha Box

Samantha Box (she/her) is a Jamaican-born, Bronx-based photographer. In her studio-based practice, she uses still-life, self-portraiture, sound, and installation to explore her intersecting diasporic Caribbean histories and identities. This work has been exhibited at the Houston Center of Photography (2019), the Andrew Freedman House (2020), Empty Set Project Space (2021), and Mana Contemporary Chicago (2021); and was the focus of her residency at the Center of Photography at Woodstock in August 2021.

Her previous documentary work focused on New York City's community of queer and TGNB youth of color, and was widely recognized, notably with a NYFA Fellowship (2010), and shown, most prominently, as part of the ICP Museum’s Perpetual Revolution (2017) exhibition. This work is part of the permanent collections of the Open Society Foundation, EN FOCO, the Museum of Fine Art Houston, and of Light Work, where she was in residence in 2015.

Box holds an MFA in Advanced Photographic Studies from the International Center of Photography/Bard College (2019) and a certificate in Photojournalism and Documentary Studies from the International Center of Photography (2006). She was a member of the Bronx Museum of the Arts’ AIM Fellowship program in 2021.
