lion base – freetown, sierra leone at powerhouse books [event]

July 15, 2013

On July 18th, we invite you on a journey to Lion Base – Freetown, Sierra Leone at Powerhouse Books with a series of powerful imagery, through the lens of acclaimed photographer Barron Claiborne, cinematographer Shawn Peters and publisher Mallence Bart-Williams.

The exhibition accompanies the launch of the photography book, which provides an intimate outlook into lives of the teenage boys who lived in the gutter called Lion Base, documenting their development into the creative collective FOLORUNSHO, and their collaborations with LEE Jeans, K1X and Parisian artist JR.

A sponsored cocktail reception will be followed by a short screening and Q & A.
