Phil Knott has documented the the growth of Afropunk culture and has become a hobby for Mr. Knott, who has been taking street portraits of the alternative black scene in New York for the past five years.
When he attended his first Afropunk social event, he immediately gravitated to the vibrant expression that was encouraged among the crowd.
“I had never seen anything like it before,” he admitted. “I had never seen so many black kids do punk in one space.”
To set up his portraits, he matches his method to the mood. While on the streets, he rolls out a white sheet of paper and tapes it to a wall. Inspired by Richard Avedon’s rich contrast fashion portraits, and to “avoid distraction from their faces,” Mr. Knott uses a white background for all of his portraits.
“I just wanted them to look at the camera and show themselves for what they are,” he said. “I never dressed them. These people were photographed as they were.”
This month, Mr. Knott was in the studio with Unlocking the Truth, a trio of black middle-schoolers from Brooklyn. The heavy-metal band recently signed with Sony Records.
