We sometime overlook the power and visual impact of black and white photography. In this over- digital age we miss the depth of story and connection to the artisans. I am always pulled back to basics when I visit the work of Chester Higgins Jr., an important African-American photographer whose work spans decades of capturing the essence of the Diaspora. In his series In Our Manner, a chapter of the book Feeling the Spirit, he goes about rediscovering our history as a means to construct a new and total view of ourselves.
Imagine the impact and cultural richness that a total wall of Mr Higgins’ work would have. Perhaps another medium in which to express your own African-inspired manner.
