Mark your calendars for this inaugural edition of Visually Speaking marking its 5th season, in its new home at the historic and forever engaging, Brooklyn Public Library. This edition of Visually Speaking! will delve into the stunning imagery of MFON: Women Photographers of the African Diaspora, a new and important journal focusing on Women Image Makers who celebrate, document life & the surrounding visual culture as seen through their individual cameras in the challenging moments of the contemporary.
Join us as MFON’s Co-founders, award-winning photographers and super dynamic duo, Laylah Amatullah Barrayn and Delphine Fawundu speak with Of Note Magazine editorial director Grace Ali for what will be an enlightening evening. The Visually Speaking! Photographic talk series is curated by Photographer Terrence Jennings for the Brooklyn Public Library.
