This afternoon I met up with our photographer friend Rose Callahan and her boyfriend Kelly in Harlem to shoot Michael Andrew who we're profiling in an upcoming New School Dandy Profile. After the shoot the four of us headed over to the opening reception for Dandy Lion: Behold A Gentleman, a photo exhibit of black dandies, featuring the work of Elen K. Awalom, Laylah Amatullah Barrayn, Russell K. Frederick, Cassi Amanda Gibson, Akintola Hanif, Jamala Johns, Dexter Jones, Lafotographeuse, Brandi Pettijohn, Hanif Abdur-Rahim, and Radcliffe Roye. The exhibit is running through November 28th. If you're in the NYC area, check it out!
