Rahim Fortune is a visual artist from the Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma. He uses photography to ask fundamental questions about American identity. Focusing on the narratives of individual families and communities, he explores shifting geographies of migration and resettlement and the way that these histories are written on the landscapes of Texas and the American South.


Fortune’s commissions include work for The New Yorker, The New York Times, T: The New York Times Style Magazine, The Wall Street Journal Magazine, Re-Edition Magazine, i-D, Nike, Carhartt WIP, Coach and Converse, among others.


Fortune’s book, I Can’t Stand to See You Cry, was published by Loose Joints in 2021 and was the winner of the Rencontres d'Arles Louis Roederer Discovery Award 2022. His forthcoming book Hardtack is due for release by Loose Joints in Spring 2024. His work has been featured in exhibitions worldwide and many permanent collections, including the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, GA, LUMA Arles, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
