Rikkí Wright: SIS
August 23 – November 7, 2021
Since 2015, Los Angeles-based photographer Rikkí Wright has been exploring Black sisterhood in her series "SIS." Through her work, Wright analyzes the unique sibling relationship and how it affects the development of personal agency. The images – featuring real-life sisters – investigate sisterhood in its glory and complexity: its experiences of compassion and competition, love and jealousy, and indescribable joy. Pepperdine Libraries is delighted to present a selection of photographs from the series along with one of Wright's videos.
