Fabrice Monteiro

Researching into the history of slavery in Gees Bend I came across the horrific contraptions slaves were made to wear during this period.  Such as the heavy iron collars with spikes and bells attached. I felt I needed to look further into this and into the function of the spike and antler like pieces that appeared from out of the collar.  I discovered an artist who works on the border between photojournalism and fashion photography. He has a taste for the portrait, the looks and sensitivity it can covey, but mostly for his homeland, Africa.

He manages to convey so much emotion in a single image, it’s truly inspirational.
