This is the first monograph of Russian-Ghanian photographer, Liz Johnson Artur. The self titled book is a substantial restrospective overview of 30 years of work. Both black and white and colour portraiture feature from a diverse range of locations, from Peckham to Russia, US to Africa, The West Indies to Europe. Her primarily black subjects are captured without the usual ‘music’, ‘sport’, ‘ghetto’, ‘poverty’ and ‘protest’ labels which are still the norm in contemporary photography.
