"Dandy Lion: (Re) Articulating Black Masculine Identity is an exhibition....seeking to shake up, deconstruct and affirm loosely the social conventions of style and fashion among black folk. Met this gentleman who said he saw the ad in the "Reader" and knew he had to come see the work. Here he is standing in front of two of my images that are in the show.
