Trained in journalism and photography, Allison Minto uses her artistic practice to explore ideas of history, place, and how archiving—both personal and institutional—contributes to the preservation of memory, particularly for Black communities and the Black diaspora. She holds an MFA in Photography from the Yale School of Art, where she received the John Ferguson Weir Award, and a BA in Journalism from SUNY-Buffalo State College. Minto is currently a Yale University Art Gallery/Artspace New Haven 2021-2022 Happy and Bob Doran Connecticut Artist in Residence, a 2021-2022 DocX Archive Lab Fellow at Duke University, and a member of Diversify Photo.
