Francisco Diaz + Deb Young
Deb Young is an artist-photographer based in New Zealand and Francisco Diaz is an artist-photographer based in the USA. Young was awarded her Photographic Society of New Zealand Licentiateship by the PSNZ Honors Board and Diaz graduated with his BA from Queens College and his MA from Adelphi University. Together the duo is known as The International Collaboration Project.
They seldom use models, props or set-ups, but create from totally random images. Though separated by more than 8,000 miles, their collaborative process encompasses working together remotely in real time on one piece and viewing through each other’s camera.
Their collaboration is based on gender equality to both redress the imbalance of woman in the art world and to infuse their narrative work with a masculine/feminine sensibility.
