3 booklets, 1 postcard, and 1 sheet (2 sided) in paper folder. "Publisher's Description: Dark Archives by artist Andre Bradley is a provocative exploration of one black man's memories of childhood. An autobiography in fragments, Dark Archives interweaves Bradley's writing and photographs with pictures from his family archive. Part story, part lyrical investigation, Dark Archives aims to upset the linguistic and visual constrictions placed on black males. Bradley powerfully combines image and text in this deeply moving meditation on narrative agency, on the family as archive, on being a young black man, and on being Andre Bradley."
