Artist Statement

Delaney Yoha creates visual poetry through her photography. She works to bring out raw emotion, depth, and authenticity by observing connections between humans, landscape, and the energies around us. Approaching her work with compassion and honesty. Love, our most unique emotion, is the one constant in her work; it is the source of her creative drive and what she documents in all her subjects. The intimate adoration between lovers–old and young, mother and child, friends, and even strangers are all deeper than we realize. When we understand these connections, we build empathy and community. She shows her viewers these different loves to bring out the vibrance we all have within us, to inspire all people to choose care and tenderness over animosity and indifference.

For her work to achieve the goals and concepts she prioritizes, human connection is the most important aspect of her process. She allows herself to be open, vulnerable, and willing to share her stories in order for others to share theirs. Building a genuine connection with her subject allows for comfortability and trust to be built. Through authentic relationships, she creates photographs that leave viewers in a feeling of awe.Delaney works on various projects, from studio, advertising, and commercial content to personal, fine art, and creative portraits. Having a vast knowledge of professional and natural lighting, she is able to communicate the intangible feelings left within her work for viewers to observe as well.

Emphasis on individuality and bringing out the unique story of each person allows her subjects to feel truly loved and seen; this is what fulfills me as a person and photographer. With a camera, Delaney shines a light on each person’s energy and spirit. To highlight these qualities in both digital and analog photographs, her editing style is reminiscent of film. Growing up in the simplicity of rural Ohio, Delaney leans toward minimalistic, natural images using beautiful warm tones of yellows, blues, and greens. Her inspiration comes from Renaissance paintings, the natural world, color harmony, and delicacy. In her connection to the souls of her subjects, she brings her images to life with mesmerizing emotion.
