Allison Minto is a Connecticut based visual artist working in photography. She holds a BA in Journalism from Buffalo State College and an MFA in Photography from the Yale School of Art, where she was awarded the John Ferguson Weir Award. 

Her career started out as a backpack journalist for local news and then transitioned into media production for reality and documentary television shows.  After years of working in television she decided to follow her passion and pursue photography.

Allison's work engages with African American archives, history, memory, preservation and maintenance. She sees the archive as a cultural testimony to how we exist, and utilizes this method of making to explore the historical consciousness that transcends personal, past and present narratives.

She was recently selected to participate in the 33rd Eddie Adams Workshop in which she received The Bill Epperidge Memorial Award.  

She is currently a Fall CoLAB resident at UnionDocs.
