Fortune

(1994)

Rahim Fortune is part of a new generation of photographers who are reclaiming America’s photographic history, uncovering the ways that racial injustice has acted in the past and the present to shape American visual identity. Both his editorial and his fashion work are rooted in classical social documentary photography, but he approaches this genre from a fresh perspective, pushing against some of its prevailing conventions. In place of images that spectacularise poverty and marginalisation amongst minority communities, Fortune incorporates elements of the vernacular in his practice in order to show the everyday lives of underrepresented individuals and groups.
