Showing The Great Diversity of Black Masculinities Black Masculinities explores the broad spectrum and diversity of Black masculinities through the medium of contemporary photography. Seen through the lenses of 22 Black (or) People of Color (BPoC) from around the world, the stereotypic entanglement of Black identity and masculinity is deconstructed and charged with a new set of values. Embedded in a long history of slavery, racism and oppression, the topos of Black masculinity continues to be subtly represented as aggressive, hypersexual and violent to this day. This richly illustrated book breaks down and visualizes the common mechanisms of representation in visual culture through carefully edited images and a textual contextualization. It acts as an introductory index and platform for BPoC photographers, who have been underrepresented at all levels of art production since the beginnings of photography, and makes their work visible. For all of us.
