The Heart of Identity features the photography and mixed media artwork of Ackeem Salmon. Through his work, Ackeem unpacks the many layers of who he is, as well as the complexities and expectations of society.

Ackeem Salmon was born on April 10th, 1998. He is originally from Kingston, Jamaica, and moved to Detroit, Michigan in November 2014. He attended the Detroit School of Arts from January to June 2015 and has won over fifteen art competitions and awards, including the Scholastics Art and Writing Competition and the National NAACP ACT-SO photography competition. This young, self-taught, artist is inspired by everything around him. His passion for theatre and writing fuels his fashion and Fine Art photography to become a new and revolutionary part of the art community. Ackeem has exhibited both locally and internationally at places such as the Val de Vie Estate, in South Africa, the Jamaica Conference Centre, in Jamaica, the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History, in Detroit, and other prominent local establishments within Detroit such as the Dell Pryor Gallery and Sherwood Forest Gallery. Ackeem’s photography has indeed been labeled as a new taste in the art world due to his unique style and methods of creativity. He is currently a student at the College for Creative Studies majoring in Photography with a minor in Advertising Design. Ultimately, he aims to become a world-renowned artist with artwork permanently affixed to the walls of the most prestigious places in existence.
