Dark Archives book

Dark Archives by Andre Bradley is a provocative exploration of the artist’s memories of childhood. An autobiography in fragments, Bradley’s writing and photographs are interwoven 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 folder.
