In Photos: Portraits by photographer Jalani Morgan.

It’s always strange and a bit surreal to me when I look at a photograph of strangers and somehow manage to feel as though the person behind the lens has so aptly managed to capture the essence of those pictured. Perhaps it’s a bit of romanticism on my part, but I can’t help but feel that way when looking at the work of photographer Jalani Morgan. What may on the surface seem to be a simple portrait becomes an intensifying three-way relationship between the subject, the photographer and viewer.  A two-dimensional image is brought to life and in a matter of seconds, upon gazing at Morgan’s portraits, I have no option but to feel a close connection to the unknown faces captured by his lens.

Jalani Morgan is a portrait, fine art and documentary photographer. 

Born in Toronto, Ontario, and raised in Scarborough. He was influenced by his parents’ teachings of the African Diasporas and politics and through that is interjected into his art. 

He produces work that investigates the representation from the African diaspora.

Currently he is studying at York University in Toronto obtaining his degree in Anthropology and African Studies.

im not even disagreeing i mean monetized hiphop gets whiter and homogenous and that’s a huge bummer and i think there is an important discussion to be had there but there are so many different underground rap/afropunk/dance kindsa music now, more diverse and queer and inclusive than ever, and having the ‘is hiphop dead?’ conversation over and over again just shows how out of touch ppl are… like young ppl are moving on to completely new styles of music and ppl still talkin about how much they hate pop music and the days of ‘real hiphop’ are gone

Are Millennials Sick and Tired of ‘Are Millennials’ News Titles?

"So what else do you do to the largest politicized tech savvy generation? You gaslight them, flood the media with news stories that victim blame us for our failures to not turn out to be good little capitalists. Lower our expectation so that $30,000 salaries begin to look good. Create movies and shows that shame young adults forced to move back with their parents because housing prices and wages are not aligned, what do you do other than to try to beat our confidence so that we numb ourselves with drugs, booze, sex, and mindless entertainment so we won’t connect the dots and put together that it’s the system that is fucked up–that capitalism is the crisis and it was the hippies turned yuppies that sold us out."
