Final copy! AJAMU : ARCHIVE
Final copy of this popular, limited-edition artist’s book
Black British queer photographer and archive curator, Ajamu X, has been at the forefront of genderqueer photography since the early 1990s. Published in a print run of only 500 copies following the artist’s successful Kickstarter campaign, AJAMU : ARCHIVE unapologetically celebrates queer black bodies, desire, difference and pleasure activism. Autograph are delighted to be the sole distributor of the remaining 100 copies, available exclusively in our online shop.
This limited-edition, signed artist’s book includes photographic works that have never been exhibited or published before alongside specially commissioned texts from Johnny Golding and Dr Sheena Calvert, contextualising Ajamu’s practice at this pivotal point in his career. This beautifully designed book reflects the aesthetic and high production values embodied in the artist’s work, and features an small postcard print of Diamond Pornstar alongside a unique set of bookmarks.
Please note, this book contains nudity and sexually explicit images.
