Afropunk 2016


New York-based photographer Driely S. set up a tintype photobooth at Afropunk over the weekend. This particular method of photography dates back to the late 1800s and employs a thin sheet of metal coated with a dark lacquer or enamel.

The end results are very striking images, especially with subjects that have darker skin tones. Driely S.’s photobooth paid tribute to the late Malian photographer Malick Sidibé. Sidibé, who passed away in April, is considered one of the African godfathers of contemporary photography. His signature black and white images often features a striped backdrop, similar to the one Driely S. to take portraits of Afropunk headliners Janelle Monae, Earl Sweatshirt, TV on the Radio, as well several festival goers.
