Rhianydd Hylton is a NYC based photographer and visual artist whose work explores conceptualizations of beauty and identity. With an emphasis on editorial and fine art portraiture, Rhianydd aims to empower the individuals that she photographs, often creating spaces where marginalized identities are brought to the forefront. Through intimate imagery, she uses her medium as a means of connection, whether that be a connection to an individual, a community, or an idea.

Delving into new practices has led to significant work with textile, utilizing printing processes such as cyanotypes and screenprints to intertwine her images with fiber. Rhianydd graduated with a BFA in Photography & Imaging from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts in May of 2022.
