Whitney Bradshaw is an artist, activist, educator, and former social worker whose practice seeks to empower her subjects while challenging the social systems that marginalize and oppress them. She is currently the chair of the visual arts conservatory at ChiArts (the Chicago High School for the Arts). Her photographs have been widely exhibited including solo shows at the DePaul Art Museum, the Tarble Arts Center, Wave Pool Gallery, the Lubeznik Center for the Arts, among others. Her work can be found in the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Photography, the DePaul Art Museum, Columbia College Chicago, Northwestern School of Law, and the Sara M. and Michelle Vance Waddell collection. Her photographs have been published or reviewed in the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, the LA Times, Time Out New York, Vogue, Float Photo Magazine, and the Esthetic Lens Magazine to name a few. WTTW Chicago Tonight ran a piece on Bradshaw’s social practice project, Outcry, in 2018.
