About

About the exhibition and artist:

Each portrait has a specific meaning and embodies rich African culture. Pairing each capture with modern African art, she produced a blend of traditional portraits with abstract sensitivity.

Ceres Henry known artistically as Diaja, is recognized for storytelling though various photographic series, which are often inspired by current events, Black and African culture,  and social disparities. Her work has caught the attention of various publications including Vogue Italia, Huffington Post, and recently Black Enterprise to name a few. Diaja prides herself in not only creating photos appealing to the eyes of her audience, but thought provoking/ educational photos that raise awareness of the world around her.  

X Gallery:   X Gallery is dedicated to participating in the cultural development of Harlem through the exhibition of       Art and Photography. We strive to create an environment where local people and foreigners of every background can be touched by the beauty of art. We are committed to exhibitions and programs that will strengthen and sustain our community. Lisa DuBois, curator www.xgallery.nyc
