Khalik Allah frames his captivating work as “camera ministry” in order to emphasize how his intimate and probing approach to film and photography is an act of service to, and care for, those he portrays. From the concrete corners of 125th and Lexington in New York to his ancestral homeland of Jamaica, Allah reveals the strength, resilience, beauty, and love he finds amongst individuals and communities constrained by poverty, mental illness, and negative stereotypes. Never shying away for the cruel radiance of what is, Allah’s lens nonetheless points us towards an alternative possibility of care.  

In this masterclass, Allah will share insights into his artistic practice and creative philosophy through excerpts from his latest work.
