Zia Palmer is an artist, photographer, archivist, and family historian based in the D.C. metro area. Through analog photographic processes, Palmer records the often slow changes in communities, landscapes, and architecture, specifically legacies and remnants of her ancestral locations in North Eastern New Mexico. Exploring the thought that land has memory, recording all that took place there, has become a catalyst in linking the illusive aspects of memory, identity, and family history into something tangible. She received her BFA from George Mason University in 2019. Zia’s work has been exhibited at the Torpedo Factory Art Center, The Gillespie Gallery of Art, Tephra Institute of Contemporary Art, and more.
