Photographer, Queer Caribbeans of NYC
Masheka Joseph (she/her/hers) is a self-taught portrait photographer. Born and bred on the Twin Islands of Trinidad and Tobago, Masheka presently resides in Brooklyn, NY.
Her introduction to photography began as a teenager, after finding her cousin’s DSLR camera laying around. Not one for the spotlight, she found a pleasant comfort behind the camera, and a newfound ability to view the world and the people in it. Joseph is a renowned queer and immigrant filmmaker and photographer. She is the proud owner of Akehsam Productions, a multimedia company with over a decade of experience in the curation of Caribbean LGBTQ oral stories & culture, and has designed the logo for Chutney Pride and Caribbean Equality Project.
Her ultimate goal is to form a bond with each client, even if it’s for a split second. The images she produces are done with the client’s individual authenticity as a benchmark. "A split second is all you need to capture the world, within someone else’s eyes."
