SITE UNDER CONSTRUCTION (relaunch summer 2013)
In the meantime:
CALL FOR WORK:
3/31: Thank you to all of the women who have submitted their work to be included in this volume. If I haven't replied to you individually already I do plan to do so, so please bear with me.
As I previously mentioned, I've gotten great response to this call for work--much more than I anticipated, which means this book is going to be fantastic!
I am now in the phase of organizing images and plan to write the book this summer in New Orleans (if you're there, please let me know--I would love to see/meet you!), and I remain open to receive work up basically until the book goes to press. As I work on both the book and the redesign of this site, I will provide updates here, so stay tuned.
I am working on a follow-up to The Black Female Body: A Photographic History, which I co-authored with Deborah Willis and which was published almost 11 years ago (and is long out of print).
The follow-up volume (working title Represent!) will focus on the representation of black women by black women artists and work created since 2000. (Deb is not co-authoring this with me.)
I am seeking work by contemporary African diaspora women photographic artists that addresses the black female body. This can include representational work, the absence of the body (eg., landscapes), etc.--however you're conceptualizing black women's bodies.
Please send your information/links to bodies of work/queries, etc., to firstname.lastname@example.org.
