Narkita Gold was born in 1987 in Nashville, Tennessee. She has been honing her skills in digital photography since 2009. Originally a public relations professional, Gold blends her gift of photography with storytelling, creating a perfect marriage of her two passions. Her first creative endeavor, Black in Denver, is a portrait and interview series that takes a critical look at identity, specifically at small Black communities, solitude, and the evolution of the self. Gold’s approach includes participant observation, empathy interviews, and surveying both locals and transplants to gain a better understanding of Black life in Denver. The artist is passionate about people, arts and culture, and finds inspiration in the human experience, our purpose here, city life, and architecture. She lives and works in Denver.
