Harris’s initial series of photographic work titled “Americas,” produced in 1987-88, consists of black and white gelatin silver prints exploring issues of race, gender, sexuality and their intersections in the formation of subjectivity. This was followed by “Constructs” in 1989, a selection of which was included in the groundbreaking “Black Male” exhibition of 1994 at the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York) and Hammer Museum (Los Angeles). The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York acquired “Americas (Triptych)” in 2012.
