Lawson is visually inspired by the materiality of black culture and its expression as seen through the body and in domestic environments. Her work addresses themes of familial legacy, community, romance, and religious spiritual aesthetics, borrowing from visual traditions such as formal portraiture and vernacular family photographs. Lawson’s work was featured in the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and she was the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2013. She currently teaches photography at Princeton University.
