This is the first monograph of Russian-Ghanaian photographer, Liz Johnson Artur. The self titled book is a substantial restrospective overview of 30 years of work. Both black and white and colour portraiture feature from a diverse range of locations, from Peckham to Russia, US to Africa, The West Indies to Europe. Her primarily black subjects are captured without the usual ‘music’, ‘sport’, ‘ghetto’, ‘poverty’ and ‘protest’ labels which are still the norm in contemporary photography.

Bulgarian-born Johnson-Artur was born to a Russian mother and a Ghanaian father and has spent the past six years focusing on subjects in the African diaspora. Her most affluent work includes portraits of the late Amy Winehouse and hip hop artist Mos Def.
