HYCIDE IN FLUX issue and exhibition include images that trace Akintola Hanif’s evolution as an artist. Photos span the breadth of his two-decade career, from his documentation of marginalized groups — such as gang members and the homeless — to his many portraits revealing the beauty and complexity of Black style and culture.
HYCIDE In Flux also features stories and images by other artists focusing on spiritual, political and creative transformations and turning points. A photo essay titled The 5 Wards explores the city during Newark’s 350th anniversary in 2016, a time when the media narrative shifted from a focus on crime to redevelopment and signs of gentrification. www.hycide.com
