“In [Ayana V.] Jackson’s images, there are no ‘others’—there is just the artist, and the discomfort in seeing a black woman pose in a manner that, even today, could be considered exploitative. The power of Jackson’s images lies in that point of discomfort. She refuses to let the visual legacy of racism, slavery and oppression remain in the past.” Brienne V. Walsh • Photo District News
