Dandy Lion: The Black Dandy and Street Style explores global Black dandyism. These men and women of African descent use style and fashion to define and inhabit a proud, radically independent public persona and cultural heritage. In the vein of Malick Sidibe and Seydou Keita, founder and curator Shantrelle Lewis collaborates with contemporary photographers to capture their revolutionary spirit and sartorial attire in this internationally renowned project.
