Signed, on reverse, lower right, in black ink: Darryl Terrell / 2023


This image is one of a series of studio portraits of Black men and non-binary people. All the figures in the Hivyo Tété (“so fragile” in Swahili) series are accented with flowers. The light rests on DeAndre’s flower-caressed face as it emerges from the darkness. The contrast of DeAndre’s masculinity with the gentleness of the blooms creates a deeply intimate, wistful, and calm portrait. What does beauty have to do with joy?
