Jah Grey

Jah Grey is a self-taught photographic artist primarily focused on portraiture. His works, which began in 2014, are an ongoing study of Black masculinity, exploring the complex and nuanced relationship between vulnerability, joy, and identity through the lens of a Black transman. Generally capturing Black men who do not adhere to the expectations of hyper-masculinity imposed upon them, Jah skillfully uses the power of his photography to challenge harmful gender norms, planting the seeds for healthier identities and creating space for expanded notions of Black masculinity and belonging. His work encourages onlookers to live out loud, rediscover their identities, and build home within themselves. Most recently Jah Grey founded the Black Men’s Therapy Fund, a non-profit that’s focused on supporting the urgent mental health needs of Black men across intersections.
