Photographer Les Adu was deeply affected by the death of George Floyd and the subsequent outcry of the Black Lives Matter movement worldwide. As a reaction, Adu created over one hundred powerful portraits of his family, friends and acquaintances. The individual photographs voice their strength, resilience and pride.
How do we experience the world one year after the death of George Floyd? How can we come together and create a better world? Take a seat in front of the camera and get your portrait taken by Les Adu. During the photo session, Les Adu will ask you questions that make you think about important themes featured in the exhibition.
