Many of my photographs are now incredibly mundane - pictures of black people lounging, relaxing, doing nothing but existing in real time. However, I have not lost the desire to portray a spectacle, to get lost in the flattening stereotypes that persist in representations of black women that I also love to enact and perform. Old habits die hard.
Today, this piece is Keïta and Sherman Had a Baby (2014). Other titles considered include the following:
Near Threatened
Endangered Species
Passing for a Leopard
You can’t see me, fool
Imitation of Life
Equal Opportunist
The Domestication Effect
True Beast
Dionysius, the Dying God
For My Grandma Who Passed for White, then Stopped
Living a Lie is a Poor Substitute
Jeremiah 13:23: Can the Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots? then may ye also do good, that are accustomed to do evil.

I was thinking of posting some happy music yesterday to celebrate the arrival of spring, but there’s a few inches of snow on the ground in Chicago right now, and who was I to think that there’s a such thing as spring in Chicago anyway, even in a good year?
