NYC - Black for Rouge 58: Brother From Another Mother

You know that old adage - "behind every good man is an even better woman. " Well, in this case, it's great women with great men supporting us. When it comes to a community of creative women, there are certainly male friends and family who have helped support in many, many ways.

One of those guys happens to be my brother from another mother photographer Kareem Black. Kareem has a new photo exhibition in Brooklyn next week at Rouge 58.

"Inspired by Guy Bourdin, his most favored photographer, Kareem collaborated with acclaimed stylist Harold Melvin to creatively direct seven images reminiscent of one of the greatest advertising photographers of our time. Exclusively shot for Rouge 58 to coincide with New York Fashion Week, it echoes Bourdin’s legendary Exhibit A series, Kareem has aptly titled his series as Exhibit B, both as an homage to the photographer and a reference this own last name.

Coming from an industry obsessed with the face and eyes as the anchor of beauty and often a tool for celebrity, Kareem draws on Bourdin’s style; dark humor, awkward playfulness and even violent sexiness."

Support a LLady killer, say hi to Kareem and thank him for supporting Ladies Lotto from its inception.
