Adam Davis’s Black Magic

Sat, December 24th, 2022 - Sun, January 8th, 2023

In conjunction with Called to the Camera: Black American Studio Photographers, Los Angeles–based photographer Adam Davis is bringing his ongoing Black Magic project to NOMA.

During his two-week Creative Assembly Connector Residency, Davis will set up a studio on the museum’s second floor, where he will produce photographic tintypes as part of his goal to create an archive of 20,000 portraits of Black Americans. Davis has traveled with Black Magic across the country to cities including Tulsa, Chicago, and Detroit. Learn more about in the project in an article from the Los Angeles Times.

On select days during this residency, visitors will have the opportunity to pose for and receive a free tintype portrait from Davis.
