Black Lives Matter (NSFW)

There have always been a lack of color in the art world. It is important to put in the forefront, cultural diversity, depicting the true America and most importantly, the realistic world. We live on a planet that offers so much diversity, yet it is somewhat missing in our art galleries, museums and even fashion magazines. In most African American art, we see days of slavery , poverty and struggle instead of just seeing the beauty of black people. There are more to African Americans than just a slave and civil rights history. Through media, daily encounters and recent events, it is quite obvious that racism is still alive. Black lives do matter and The Human Gallery would like to showcase the fact that black is beautiful and black people, as in all races, are works of art too, without having to be depicted as impoverished. This series of photos are not to stir up debate about racism or the suffering of black people, but for a change, just showcase the rarely seen vision of African Americans as just simply artistically beautiful and worthy of gallery exposure. And just a note, not all photographers are African American. This is about the subject.
