Photographers who capture some of the diversity and wealth of black beauty shouldn’t be as scarce as they are; London based photographer David Pattinson (second from top) executes it beautifully.
Known for his collaboration with dynamic duo Art Comes First he has an adventurous eye, and he should be on your radar.
Here’s what Pattinson says about his work:
“I take a documentary ‘straight photography’ approach and predominately work in fashion and portraiture, shooting mostly in black and white. I’m particularly interested in documenting the process of creation, especially of hand crafted work.”

“My Percy, I know your first instinct will be to grieve, but I adjure you rather to consider our son and the love you must show him.” I knew it would be a boy. “Always teach him to dream. To seek the unknown. To look for what is beautiful is its own reward. And I beg you to remember those words so easy to forget: ‘A man’s reach should exceed his grasp, or what’s a heaven for?’
my dearest love forever.”
