11 Black Photographers That Should Already Be On Your Radar

The killing of unarmed black men, women, and children by US statewide law enforcement sparked worldwide protests in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. It has also required companies and individuals to think about their own part in allyship and also, implicit bias. Pack on the global pandemic crisis, rising unemployment, and high fashion’s big schedule change and you have a media industry that is on the brink of radical metamorphosis. Now is the time to do the needed reading and research to inform yourself of widespread talent while taking to task what the fashion industry has chosen to value in the past. Models.com has long built a reputation as a launchpad for new, invigorating creatives and we stand by the continued global mission of discovering the ones about to take off. Today, we support the black photographers that should have already been on your radar and who are shaking up the status quo establishment.
