Hank Willis Thomas

Hank Willis Thomas, "Basketball and Chain" -- from his “Branded Series” in which he takes an ad that you may see dayin and day out and shows the underlining racism that is present. HisBranded series is definitely one that makes you think whether you agree with it or not. He uses the comparison of the NBA trade to the slave trade showing the similarities with a mashup of ads and images. He is in the new issue of Juxtapoz. I'm endlessly fascinated with his images and approach. His work is amazing. Read the interview by clicking here.
