Photo project: Black Gay Elders and Youth/Father and Son

Greetings brothers,

I'm working with NYC's Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC) to produce a coffee-table type book that depicts loving and affirming relationships between fathers and sons.

There will be a casting call to pair together black gay men and black gay youth to depict father and son. Additionally, there will be text written by youth that describes their relationships with their fathers. I've been hired to do the photography and I assure you this will be a powerful book!

Some of you have already expressed interest in participating in my elders project (, and this piece is an offshoot of that. I'm asking all brothers (40 and up) who are interested in participating in the project to reply to this email, and we'll take it from there. If you have a photo of yourself to attach to the email, that will help in the casting process. If you don't, still reply, and I'll provide details.

If you're not already familiar with my photography, you can peruse my blog at

Look forward to collaborating with you on this wonderful project!
