Reviews

"Systemic change is already afoot, with many of Sargent's chosen photographers expanding the scope of their work... Righting historical wrongs is one of Sargent's goals."--Radhika Seth, Vogue

"...explores and expands the visual narrative on beauty and identity in mainstream culture, but also on ideas specific to gender." --Rebecca Carroll, WNYC "These photographers are spearheading a new aesthetic in fashion and art, and are currently some of the most sought-after names in the business." --Kemi Alemoru, The Guardian "The sheer size of emerging talent featured in The New Black Vanguard: Photography Between Art and Fashion, a new book by the curator, critic, and W contributor Antwaun Sargent, is astonishing." --Stephanie Eckardt, W "The New Black Vanguard is a celebratory and thought-provoking mesh of fashion and art." --Eni Subair, Refinery29 "With photos illuminating life in Black America and the African diaspora, these artists are crafting a new way of speaking visually about politics and representation." --Devine Blacksher, The Cut "The survey includes 15 portfolios of work form women and men; it serves as a resource for editors and curators, a snapshot of the changing fashion and fine-art landscapes, and a celebration of black beauty in all of its guises." --Jacqui Palumbo, Artsy "The artists of The New Black Vanguard are telling stories of social and political inclusivity, advocating for a wider celebration of beauty and the self--a powerful antidote for a group previously marginalized in mainstream fashion and culture." --Gemma Fletcher, Elephant "A cohort of contemporary black photographers are doing just this: querying the colour-blindness of arts establishments by showing how these figures should be depicted." --Kadish Morris, Frieze "The book, Sargent stresses, doesn't offer a monolithic perspective on the black body and the black subject but rather diverse representations of blackness from all over the world." --Daphne Milner, AnOther
