"DRILL" by Photographer Lawrence Agyei

Chicago-based Ghanaian photographer Lawrence Agyei celebrates the South Shore Drill Crew in his newest physique of labor, “DRILL.” A non-profit group primarily based on the south aspect of Chicago, the group makes use of efficiency artwork to empower youth. In 2020, the pandemic halted SSDT’s efficiency, disrupting the close-knit group, and, for the primary time in 35 years, canceling their efficiency on the Bud Billiken Parade—the most important African American parade within the nation. As restrictions eased in 2021, Agyei was launched to the crew and spent the yr documenting their preparation for a much-anticipated return to the parade.

“DRILL” is the fruits of this time spent working collectively and we chosen it as one of many winners of our 2022 Artwork & Picture E-book Awards. With help from Artmobile, we helped Lawrence flip this stunning collection right into a ebook! In order for you the chance to publish a ebook of your personal work, you’ll be able to pre-register for our 2023 Artwork & Picture E-book Awards right here.
