D. Hill received his M.F.A in Creative Photography at California State University, Fullerton and a B.A in Film and Video from the University of Memphis in Tennessee. As an interdisciplinary artist, his work surveys identity through cultural and/or gender lens. D. Hill works in photography, performances and video art. His work purposefully sets up a political framework for conversations dealing with race, gender, class and sexuality. Many of his works explore or inject post-constructionist practices to how image-construction is digested in contemporary spaces. His photographs, videos and performances challenge our stagnant positions of body and semiotics in regards to personal experiences.
