Portraits from the AfroPunk Fest

 “I would see more black people with mohawks than I’d ever seen my entire life. You see people who you thought you were the only one of.” -P.O.S., musician

The Afropunk fest, (“The other black experience””) an incredible, progressive event partially sponsored by the Brooklyn Academy of Music, took place in late August.  I was so stoked to see such a mix of fashion, style, culture and populace.  “Gangsta” is over, blipstersreign.  I went both days and saw Das Racist, Erykah Budu and TV on the Radio as well as other bands.  These portraits were made with a 60 year old medium format camera shot on black and white film.
