an ode to blk wmxn

Draped in 

Dark 

is the debut  solo exhibition of a self-taught Baltimore cinematographer, director and photographer Kirby Griffin. Griffin uses his skill to capture the depths of black personhood and humanity. Through his methodical use of chiaroscuro, his works tell beautiful stories of the individual, with his subjects exuding a pensive and reflective nature.

Griffin shares, “So I was driven towards a God, a Black Woman, to be the subject, one specifically skilled in movement, and could communicate in that form.... I felt like I witnessed a reincarnation of mystique, in the form of Dark.”
