DESCRIPTION

Archival ink on museum-quality cotton rag paper | 2013

"When my nephew was born, I was eighteen and I will never forget when I held him, it’s like my “why” expanded at that moment. When he is my age, I want him to know that he can do anything. I want him to know that his purpose is bigger than just him. I hope that he sees more than his uncle being successful, he sees that his uncle gave, he inspired, he motivated, he poured and sowed into others, that’s important to me. " - Morgan Cooper

Gifted is an extension of Milner’s eight-year-long exploration of black male culture — specifically a documentation of those she finds powerful, talented, and successful. Inspired by her own relationships with her brother and father, the photographer desires to subvert the common stereotypes and prejudices that often follow black men, instead shining a light on the beauty, brilliance, and sensitivity of her accomplished subjects, a group that includes directors, composers, and other leaders.

Jaimie Milner’s photographic practice is rooted in a celebration of black culture and identity. Her series ‘Gifted’ depicts men in her life inhabiting a moment that is established by intimacy, so that the viewer sees these men as Milner sees her father and brother, in opposition to media portrayals and stereotypes.

ALEXANDER MAY ON JAIMIE MILNER

“I’ve always been drawn to black and white photography throughout my life. Jaimie Milner’s images are no different in that way. I find they have a unique ability to capture an engaging contemporary story. The way she crops the image does nothing but invite you in.”
