Dark Archives book

Dark Archives is a provocative exploration of artist Andre Bradley‘s memories of childhood. An autobiography in fragments, Dark Archives interweaves Bradley’s writing and photographs with pictures from his family archive. Part story, part lyrical investigation, Dark Archives aims to upset the linguistic and visual constrictions placed on black males. Using the archive as reference point, the work is divided amongst three self cover booklets and two loose leafs, packaged inside a custom designed folder.
