Lorna Simpson for Vogue

Lorna Simpson is a name I grew up learning. She’s quite understated and her work can be quiet whilst also packing a punch. Most of Simpson’s photographic works are black and white like this piece pictured below from the ICP Collection.

A few days ago, I was thrilled and pleasantly surprised to see Simpson credited for the gorgeous portraits in a Vogue articled titled ‘Females Artists That Have Shaped the Cultural Landscape.’ The women eyed by Simpson range from rising stars like Kimberly Drew and Reina Gossett to well-established women like Shirin Neshat and Thelma Golden. These are women to know, now. Head over to Vogue to see more portraits and learn more about these cultural leaders.
