Black Portraitures: Levitating in Blackness

In preparing these photos I wanted to think of Black[Roes], those who are engaged with levitating in and with Blackness. All  were  taken during the week of Black Portraitures III in Johannesburg November 2016. Some were taken at the event, others at a cafe and others at the home of  friends. I was drawn to the portraits by the laughter, ease, beauty and confidence of these Black[Roe] activists and artists.
