Deana Lawson: Centropy

Deana Lawson’s photographs are unforgettable portraits of contemporary Black life

Kunsthalle Basel, Steinenberg 7, Basel

“Centropy” explores the sartorial styles, quotidian habits, and domestic interiors of the African diaspora in her native United States, Brazil, and beyond through meticulously staged yet profoundly intimate images.

Typically, the artist photographs her subjects semi-nude or naked, and in cramped domestic spaces, yet they rarely look either vulnerable or confined. “When I’m going out to make work, usually I’m choosing people that come from a lower- or working-class situation. Like, I’m choosing people around the neighborhood.” Lawson says.
