Barkley L Hendricks, “Family Jules: NNN (No Naked Niggahs),” 1974

A play on the traditional nude, an image of a white woman, replaced by the image of a black man, the antithesis. The image of the white woman is frequently seen to represent “purity,” whereas society sees the black man as “scary.” This image is intended to highlight those assumptions.

Berta Fischer, “Untitled,” 2014 at Galerie Karin Guenther

I was drawn to the twists, and the way the light played off of the sculpture so that no two pictures or impressions of it would be the same.
