Hank Willis Thomas: Pitch Blackness

Strand Bookstore
828 Broadway, at 12th Street
February 10th, 2009

The photographer presents selections from his monograph. Hank Willis Thomas became widely recognized with his acclaimed provocative series B(r)ANDED, which brings light to the commodification of African-American male identity by questioning visual culture and the power of logos. Pitch Blackness, his first monograph, includes selections from this series and many others. With his characteristic pointedness and dark humor, Willis Thomas shows in Pitch Blackness why he is considered one of today's most compelling emerging artists. The American Society of Media Professionals will host a wine reception during the presentation.

Come through and keep it classy with some wine, cheese, crackers, and left brain insight ;)
