Greg Weaver II

2018–19 Emerging Documentary Artist, Documentary Diversity Project

Greg is a skateboarder, photographer, and writer. Most of his photographic work concerns documenting the creativity and character of Durham’s skate community, in addition to riffing on urban scenes, exploring questions of beauty and value within the African-American experience, and doing portraiture. “I sometimes integrate the written/spoken word to tell stories from the margins (or assist those there in telling their own) and interrogate longstanding institutions and social constructs,” he writes.
