Fotografiska New York presents photographer Mel D. Cole in conversation with Coltrane Curtis for the launch of 'American Protest'

Friday, February 4 at 7 PM, Fotografiska New York presents Mel D. Cole, one of hip hop’s most accomplished and celebrated photographers, discussing his latest book, American Protest: Photographs 2020–2021, published by Damiani Books. The book visually documents the Black Lives Matter protests that swept the country and Cole hopes it will serves as a “a collective memory” that continues the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement. The conversation will be moderated by the Founder of Team Epiphany, Coltrane Curtis. Order tickets here.

Mel D. Cole has spent the last 20 years documenting music, nightlife and more. In April 2020, during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns, Cole started driving around New York City documenting the streets. But when George Floyd was murdered, Cole dedicated the rest of 2020 and beyond to photographing the Black Lives Matter protests that swept the country, and their ramifications.

In addition to canvassing the action in New York City, Cole traveled to cover protests in Washington, DC, Houston, Minneapolis, Richmond, Virginia and more. The body of work he has produced from the electrifying summer of 2020 and beyond is a powerful outpouring of the hurt, outrage and courage of people compelled to take action following Floyd’s brutal murder.
