Black Goddess
Join us on March 28
Critically acclaimed veteran photographer Ricardo Scipio will be showing photos from his Black Goddess collection for the first time ever.

Photographed in glorious colour, mostly in natural landscapes between 2002 and 2014, this is a highly diverse groundbreaking celebration of non-sexual nudes of Black women of all different shapes and sizes and colours and ages.. (NSFW)

Accompanying the showing of 100 photographs from the project will be a question-and-answer session with the artist

March 28th 6pm Pacific Time

Born in Trinidad, raised in Toronto, Scipio attended The Nova Scotia College of Art and Design where he was a studio major. He then began his love affair with cameras during a ten-year stint as an international fashion photographer. Disenchanted by the industry’s standard of ‘beauty’, which he considered hostile to women of colour and women with realistic-sized bodies, Scipio quit, and inspired by the beautiful Black people he had been surrounded by his whole life, started his art career with this celebration of natural black beauty.

Ricardo Scipio has made three independent fictional feature films as a writer and director, and eight more books of photography in the following years and is currently working on his tenth book.
