Debi Cornwall

Log-in to Favorite

Debi Cornwall is a visual artist working in conceptual documentary photography, who returned to creative expression in 2014 after a 12-year career as a wrongful conviction lawyer. Now, her values as an advocate and trained mediator, as well as her background representing innocent DNA exonerees, inform her visual work. Debi's deeply layered work marries empathy and dark humor with structural critique. Her project on Guantánamo Bay and its growing diaspora will be published as a photo book in the spring of 2017.
