„Von Beyoncé bis Barack Obama fällt es schwer, sich eine schwarze Figur vorzustellen, die ihre Bekanntheit nicht in gewissem Maße dem Ethos ‚Schwarz ist schön‘ verdankt“ – Ekow Eshun, Financial Times

In den späten 1950er und 1960er Jahren nutzte Kwame Brathwaite seine Fotografien, um den politischen Slogan „Black Is Beautiful“ bekannt zu machen. Diese Monographie – die erste, die Brathwaites bemerkenswerter Karriere jemals gewidmet ist – erzählt die Geschichte einer wichtigen, aber wenig anerkannten Figur der zweiten Harlem Renaissance.

Inspiriert von den Schriften des Aktivisten und schwarzen Nationalisten Marcus Garvey gründete Brathwaite zusammen mit seinem älteren Bruder Elombe Brath die African Jazz Arts Society and Studios (AJASS) und die Grandassa Models (1962). AJASS war ein Kollektiv aus Künstlern, Dramatikern, Designern und Tänzern; Grandassa Models war eine Modelgruppe für schwarze Frauen, die gegründet wurde, um die Schönheitsstandards der Weißen in Frage zu stellen. Von atemberaubenden Studioporträts der Grandassa-Modelle bis hin zu Bildern hinter den Kulissen der Künstlergemeinschaft von Harlem, darunter Max Roach, Abbey Lincoln und Miles Davis, bietet dieses Buch eine längst überfällige Erkundung von Brathwaites Leben und Werk

About the Author

Kwame Brathwaite

Kwame Brathwaite is represented by Philip Martin in Los Angeles. Beginning in the early 1960s, Brathwaite photographed stories for black publications such as the New York Amsterdam News, City Sun, and Daily Challenge, helping set the stage for the Black Arts and Black Power movements. By the 1970s, Brathwaite was one of the era's top concert photographers, shaping the images of such public figures as Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, James Brown, and Muhammad Ali. Brathwaite wrote about and photographed such landmark events as the the Motortown Revue at the Apollo (1963); Wattstax '72 (1972); the Jackson 5's first trip to Africa (1974); and the festival "Zaire '74," which accompanied the famous Foreman-Ali fight, the "Rumble in the Jungle." Recent acquirers of Brathwaite's work include the Museum of Modern Art and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Frances Young Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College.
