As a lens based artist, Khaleelah I. L. Harris creates new images using film camera and archival photographs through the mixed media collage medium. With a focus on intimacy, interiority, and Black women's cultural history; staged photographs and scenes inspired by archival research reveal stories hidden,  forgotten, or unimaginable. The new cyanotype printmaking process characterizes her work and deep blue hues invoke the thoughts and emotions experienced when engaging spiritual practices/processes.   

Khaleelah is regularly commissioned to create illustrations for essays in The Guardian, The Atlantic, and more.
