The Black Portraits By Yannis Davy Guibinga, a gabonese human art photographer that is known for the Black Portraits that highlight the diversity of cultures and identities in the African diaspora.
In his project The Darkest Colour however, the modern art artist moves away from his multi-colored photo shoots to focus entirely on the color black and its relationship to darkness, mourning, and death.
This amazing contemporary artist works seek to unpack the negative aspects of the both the color and its symbolism.
“Black is generally the colour associated with tragedy, death, and mourning, and the act of passing away is considered to be a tragedy in many cultures,” says the artist.
The 22-year-old photographer is currently a student in professional photography at Marsan College in Montreal. You can see more of his abstract art portraits, like his series 2050 which explores the future of fashion from a black woman’s perspective, on his website and Instagram.
