A selection of images by Chicago, Illinois-based mixed-media artist Adrian Octavius Walker. Working both analog and digitally, Walker creates photographs that are influenced by his deep awareness of the nuances of the human experience. He describes his inspirations as “the black body, dynamics of the black family, and archival work related to the African American experience and the untold stories that they share.”
Walker’s work was recently on display at the National Portrait Gallery Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., as part of The Outwin 2019: American Portraiture Today competition, where he was a prize-winning artist.
