Everyday Black features contemporary portraits by photographers Jessica Rycheal and Zorn B. Taylor. This new exhibition showcases the work of two artists as they explore the intersections and identities that are held within blackness.
In her work, Jessica Rycheal centers the young bloods and elders of the community who organize, build the underground scene and celebrate blackness, queerness and liberation politics. Zorn B. Taylor spotlights “the familiar,” challenging conventional ideas around blackness and whiteness in favor of illuminating the notion of the intentionally chosen, multicultural family.
Through their intimate and honest photographs, Rycheal and Taylor present snapshots that beautifully bear witness to the everyday lives of everyday black folks in Seattle.
