Blogging from A to Z Challenge: R is for…Akasha Rabut (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2020 Great and Powerful Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Akasha Rabut is a young American photographer, in her words “and educator based in New Orleans. My work explores multi-cultural phenomena and tradition rooted in the American South. I also founded Creative Council, a mentoring program for young people in New Orleans pursuing careers in the arts. My photographs have appeared in museums and galleries around the world. My first book Death Magick Abundance will be released on March 24, 2020. I have a BFA from the San Francisco Art Institute.” (http://www.akasharabut.com/contact)
