In preparing these photos I wanted to think of Black[Roes], those who are engaged with levitating in and with Blackness. All were taken during the week of Black Portraitures III in Johannesburg last November. Some were taken at the event, others at a cafe and others at the home of friends. I was drawn to the portraits by the laughter, ease, beauty and confidence of these Black[Roe] activists and artists.
