Mystic Parallax is the first major monograph by emerging interdisciplinary artist Awol Erizku. His work, which includes photography, film, video, painting and installation, references African-American and African visual culture, from hip-hop to Nefertiti, while nodding to traditions of spirituality and surrealism.

This comprehensive monograph covers Erizku's career, combining his studio practice with his work as a sought-after editorial photographer for the New Yorker, New York Magazine, Time and GQ, among others. Also featured are his conceptual portraits of black cultural icons such as Solange, Amanda Gorman and Michael B. Jordan. As Erizku recently told the New York Times, "It's important to me to make confident, powerful, downright regal images of black people."

Featuring essays by acclaimed author Ishmael Reed, curator Ashley James and writer Doreen St. Félix, and interviews with the artist by Urs Fischer and Antwaun Sargent, Mystic Parallax is a luminous and engaging testament to the artist's immense power and originality.
