Delivery time: 5-7 working days


In the stunning coffee-table book "The New Black Vanguard: Photography between Art and Fashion" and Fashion, curator and critic Antwaun Sargent discusses a radical transformation in contemporary fashion and art. The foregrounding of the black figure and black models on the catwalk and cover in the media and in art is a sign of an increasingly inclusive fashion and art community. More importantly, however, the contemporary visual vocabulary around beauty and the body has gained new vitality and substance thanks to a proliferation of powerful images created by an international community of black photographers.

In a richly illustrated essay, Sargent opens the conversation about the role of the black body in the marketplace; the cross-fertilization between art, fashion and culture in constructing an image; and the institutional barriers that have historically hindered black photographers from participating more fully in the fashion (and art) industry.

Fifteen artist portfolios showcase the most brilliant contemporary fashion photographers, including Tyler Mitchell, the first black photographer hired to create a cover story for American Vogue; Campbell Addy, founder of the Nii Agency and magazine; and Nadine Ijewere, whose early series title, The Misrepresentation of Representation, says it all. In addition to a series of conversations between generations, their images and stories chart the history of inclusion and exclusion in the creation of the commercial black image, while proposing a brilliant reimagining of the future.
