Deun is a photographer and illustrator based in Chicago, Illinois. A former English and Art teacher, her life’s work is to serve, empower, and celebrate women of color through a series of creative practices. With her photography project, the body: a home for love., Deun surfaces stories from women of color who have experienced sexual abuse as a child. The project explores how each woman relates to her body as a dwelling place post-abuse. While her primary practice is photography, Deun also utilizes text and textures to further enhance her narratives.
