Day 4: Photographer Michael Cunningham

Crowns

 

Three Things:

  • From his official bio: “Cunningham chooses to work in black and white; this allows him to express what is in his soul. ¬†Black and white photography is very personal, he says and reaches deep inside the viewer, making them study the photograph for what it represents outside of pretty colors.”
  • The book Crowns inspired a theatrical stage production, Crowns the Gospel Musical.
  • Cunningham has published four books:¬†Crowns, Jewels, Queens, and Spirit of Harlem.
