Photography, historically, has never been a 'dark-skin' thing. That's not bitter insight or cynicism -- a basic web-search for 'Shirley Cards' will swiftly inform any reader.
New technologies and several photographic practices have brought us, as a global community, quite far from the days of pre-furniture advertisements. But is it far enough? Rest assured, we'll never stop asking.
Crafting long-lasting art with the diversity of melanin at the core is only half of the job. For you, we want true and artistic. For you, we want comfort and a laugh or ten with you. We want you to feel iconic. We want to celebrate you.
And who exactly are we?
Just a couple of hopeless romantics; Chocolate City dwellers by way of NYC. One of us is a soothing heron and the other is a 4AM firecracker. We both love dope art -- and that's where you come in.
Your next step starts with you. Let us meet you there!

Art is the one place we all turn to for solace.
