In celebration of Keith Haring’s legacy, we partnered with Atlanta-based image creator Chinedu Nwakudu (@dumoarles). His work feels at once editorial and ethereal, with a thoughtful eye for capturing each subject’s unique energy. We sent Chinedu a Keith Haring edition Now camera and film to capture the energy and spirit of his friends and community.
Words and photos by Chinedu Nwakudu.
I’ve been a fan of Keith Haring ever since I learned of him through Basquiat interviews and videos. I used to paint a lot and Keith Haring’s style was so unique and influential to me because you knew who it was immediately when you saw it. That’s how I want my work to be, I want my work to speak for me when I’m not present. The people you see in these pictures all have their own identity and you can understand who they are from one look. Each one of them has an aura to them that will be able to pull you into their vicinity.
