A CREATIVE MOVEMENT CELEBRATING THE BEAUTY & GENIUS OF BLACK MEN
Gifted is an innovative platform focused on expanding a positive image of black men throughout culture. Often times we’re surrounded by so many negative images of black men: ones that devalue, degrade and fail to represent their power and the magnitude of who they are. This is a platform for the image and voice of black men today. One that challenges the current climate and reminds them of who they are...Gifted!
Over 8 years in the making, Gifted Vol. 1 features unseen images, raw unfiltered full-length interviews and thought provoking perspectives that showcase the voice of black men today.
MEET THE ARTIST
Born and raised in Southern California, Jaimie Milner discovered photography at a young age and later attended the University of Southern California where she received her Bachelors in Communication. In her studies at USC, she learned about the power of representation and how it could have a direct influence on how people saw themselves and each other. Milner combined this new found knowledge and her love of photography to capture the essence and stories of people. She uses photographic portraiture as her primary medium by which she aspires to capture, empower and inspire the human spirit.
