Publisher Note

The photographer Ming Smith has practiced her craft for more than fifty years, producing a body of work distinguished by its uncanny merging of subject and style. Her Invisible Man, Somewhere, Everywhere (1991) was made in the depths of winter. Depicting a lone figure whose form dissolves into the ink-black shadows of a frigid city street at night, the photograph testifies to the artist’s lifelong entanglement with the truths and tensions that animate African American experiences. An illuminating essay by curator Oluremi C. Onabanjo invites readers to discover, through the close reading of one picture, Smith’s ethereal yet enduring contributions to the history of photography.
