New Orleans Airlift seeks to highlight both New Orleans-based artists and the communities we live in. Akasha Rabut presents a perfect symbiosis of these two goals. Rabut is a photographer based in New Orleans, LA and New York City, NY. She has an ongoing project documenting African American subcultures in the city. (All sales of these works are split equally between Airlift, Akasha Rabut and the subject.) Rabut has a BFA in photography from the San Francisco Art Institute. She has been published in VICE, Bust Magazine, Beautiful Decay, Next American City, Feature Shoot and Juxtapose. Her work was most recently highlighted in Luna Press' anthology Inventing Reality.
