2.3 in Progress

image

The idea here is to depict modern day stereotypes of the young black male. I used imagery by staging the guys in specific ways – drinking, smoking, throwing up gang sighs etc. – and dressed in typical urban gear. So far I’ve only used props as materials, I’m considering re-zshooting the picture to better represent my idea more. As of now, I’ve used Khinde Wiley’s interpretation of urban males, as well as Kara Walker’s idea of stereotypes and silhouettes.
