Best known for her conscious African American identity photography work Tye Moores delves into the unknown of the culture varying from textured hair, dialect, and colorism. Influenced by the current state of racism and the events that followed in America she writes her own narrative of what Black beauty is. She pairs part of her work with striking colors in fashion to discuss dated thoughts on skin color while others visualize a snapshot style in black and white with humor as the intro to educate on the latest slang . Creating art from her experiences along with doing public relations and production work, growing up on the west side of Chicago, Moores' wants to continuously affect and "introduce the black side of fine art" to her peers that she feels was absent in her youth.
