On Raphael Albert's
Miss Black and Beautiful
Recently published in Crave Magazine, Miss Rosen writes — "Inspired by the spirit of the times Raphael began hosting local beauty pageants for black women before packed crowds at the legendary Hammersmith Palais in West London, a tradition that continued for more than three decades, into the 1980s. "
"For the first time, a major photography exhibition of his work is on view in Raphael Albert: Miss Black and Beautiful at Autograph APB, London, through September 24, 2016. Curated by Renée Mussai, the exhibition features more than 50 modern exclusive black and white fiber prints, color, and vintage photographs—many of which are being shown for the first time—as well as a selection of archive materials and ephemera."
