Sony Black Eye, aye ai

Our good friends at Sony have been helping us uncover emerging talent in the photographic arena since we launched Black Magazine. Photography is king at Black Mag, we simply love it. We established Sony Black Eye to provide a forum for the many photographers who assist us on our shoots, for the artists out there who don't know how talented they are yet and for the simple purpose of providing a regular forum for the art itself. Issue 8 we ramped this component up to 6 pages. We have already chosen two of the three photographers we will publish in Issue 9 - Phillip Simpson and Himiona Grace. Himiona sent us an email, taken with Black's ability to run a feature story on Civil Rights side by side with a bunch of fashion spreads. Himiona also sent us some photos and wondered if they might be considered for Sony Black Eye this issue. We went to Himiona's site and considered for about 3 seconds. This is a seriously good eye as we are sure you will agree.
