Nyrie Benton




When I think of flight, travel, and expansion, I think of the Black Femmes in my life, my

grandmother especially. She was a beautiful, loving and resilient woman who recreated herself

as many times as needed for herself and her family.


Nyrie Benton is a writer and photographer from Prince George’s County, Maryland based in

Brooklyn, New York. These mediums allow her to explore possibilities within Black Liberation

through the connected nature of context and creation.
