TOP RANK Magazine and FiveMyles are pleased to present In Private Moments, an exhibition featuring the photography of Nakeya Brown. Brown’s whimsically colored, minimally composed still-lives examine the visualization of black womanhood by engaging with the fraught cultural politics of hair. With a conceptual focus on the objects and rituals of hair maintenance, Brown’s portraits present the duality of emotions associated with black hair aesthetics – happiness and pain; beauty and sacrifice; collectivity and alienation – to render visible the deeply intimate process of self-representation. Brown’s photography is featured in the inaugural issue of TOP RANK Magazine.
