Slumflower


Two years ago, a visit to his old Bronx neighborhood prompted some questions in artist Joshua Kissi’s mind: What would it take to alter perceptions of these spaces that many people write off as “poverty-stricken” and “dangerous”? What if everyone who lived there looked different? The idea clicked and led to an examination of black and poor stereotypes through clothing.
