In Ken McFarlane’s (@365ken) portrait work, two common threads weave through: strength and dignity. “What is often highlighted in our communities is not necessarily the only thing, the best thing or the things that we know to be true,” says the photographer, based in Philadelphia. Reclaiming representations of the black community is important to Ken. “I believe in giving agency or utilizing our own agency in reflecting ourselves in the larger sense,” he explains. “What Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and many others sacrificed allows me to have the mindset and the perspective that I have. My goal is really to open new windows of opportunity so that new heroes and heroines can be known.”
