The excitement and support for Mfon is growing! Vogue did a lovely write-up on the upcoming book featuring editors Laylah Amatullah Barryn and Adama Delphine Fawundu. In it, they discuss the motivation and inspiration behind this labor of love.
Copies of the book are still available for sale with an upcoming book signing in New York City on Thursday, November 16th at the Magnum Foundation. I'll be there to sign copies and celebrate so if you'd like to attend, you can reserve your free tickets here!

I'm so excited to FINALLY being able to share exciting news that I've been holding in for months. I wanted to wait until was s official.
I'm honored to say that my Inkscape photography has been selected to be included in the inaugural journal of Mfon: Women Photographers of the African Diaspora!
This first issue will feature 100 women photographers of African descent and will include essays written by scholars, journalists and artists. The journal was named for the late Nigerian photographer Mfon Eissen who's self-portrait series "The Amazon's New Clothes" chronicled her radical mastectomy after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Her series was included in the Brooklyn Museum of Art's exhibition "Committed to the Image: Contemporary Black Photographers." but she died before her images debuted at the museum.
Of all the milestones in my art career, this one is the most meaningful because my work has been selected alongside the works of my peers: Black women photographers who too often go unnoticed. Black Girl Magic is real.
Many thanks to talented co-editor Laylah Amatalluh Barryn and Adama Delphine Fawundu for this incredible opportunity.
Mfon will be published this fall and will be available for pre-order. Stay tuned for further updates!
