Tommy Kha is a photographer and artist based in New York City and his hometown, Memphis, Tennessee. He is a recipient of the Jessie and Dolph Smith Emeritus Award, and a former artist-in-residence through the Center for Photography at Woodstock, and most recently, a resident at Light Work.
Recently, Aint-Bad Editions has published a monograph of Kha’s work, A Real Imitation.
He is also currently writing a comic and appearing in some films.
Kha holds an MFA in Photography from Yale University.
My photographs and video work operate in the conventions of the Self-Portrait, exploring the divide between self, depiction, image, and representation, and the relationship between performance and the camera.
My work is about the self in self-portrait, the portrait in self-portrait, and the hyphen in self-portrait.
