b. 1992

Bretta C. Walker is a creative practitioner utilizing still and motion photography as means of documenting her performance in the role of  Female Human in an intuition-driven and ritual-fueled practice. By harnessing the necromantic qualities of the photographic process to hold communion with self and surrounding - in concept and in form, her work addresses issues of liminality, femininity, and trauma.

Walker’s work is that of a deeply personal practice which rotates on an axis of healing while drawing cues from the resilience and sublimity of Nature and its intrinsic relation to the female condition and form. In her dedication to celluloid alongside her personal research and experimentations in eco-processing  - alchemy, the hand, process, and a sense of locality are always present, driving forces in her work. 

Walker currently leads a nomadic life on the road between the U.S. and Mexico. She holds a BFA in Studio Art from Tufts University.
