The New Black Vanguard: Photography Between Art and Fashion
Hardcover – October 29, 2019
“...explores and expands the visual narrative on beauty and identity in mainstream culture, but also on ideas specific to gender.” —Rebecca Carroll, WNYC
“These photographers are spearheading a new aesthetic in fashion and art, and are currently some of the most sought-after names in the business.” —Kemi Alemoru, The Guardian
“The book, Sargent stresses, doesn’t offer a monolithic perspective on the black body and the black subject but rather diverse representations of blackness from all over the world.” —Daphne Milner, AnOther
“Systemic change is already a foot, with many of Sargent’s chosen photographers expanding the scope of their work… Righting historical wrongs is one of Sargent’s goals.”—Radhika Seth, Vogue
