Franklyn Rodgers: The Philosophy of Strangers
"Giving 'voice' to many people he has photographed" - Maria Amidu
The first monograph of Franklyn Rodgers, featuring a range of his portrait projects including many black artists, writers and cultural commentators.
At the heart of this work is Rodgers' desire to redefine portrait photography, making the encounter a space of risk that inspires possibilities.
His work is a refreshing return to the black subject within a studio genre, with a unique personal style and vision. His aesthetic is one of beauty, with a definition that goes beyond what is pleasing to the eye.
The images are beautiful because they draw us into the detail of each person, offering an opportunity to glimpse something of both their outward appearance and inner voice.
Includes text by Maria Amidu introducing each series of work.
Dimensions: 26.5 x 28.5 cm
