“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.
