FEATURE: Feast your eyes on Brooklynite Dexter R. Jones’ otherworldly photography
By Eye Candy
May 12, 2016
Dexter R. Jones is Brooklyn born and raised photographer who specializes in conceptual editorial and cultural photography. There’s an unidentifiable darkly ethereal quality to his images. A secret mystery lurking just below the surface, threatening its exposure at any moment. Drawing inspiration from his Caribbean heritage and African studies, Dex uses his photography to create something of a vacuum that removes pretense to project a different image of beauty and cultural iconography and identity. Dex’s work has been featured by the Dandy Lion exhibit at MoCADA, Neekid Blk Gurls in the Rush Arts Gallery curated by Danny Simmons, and Art for Social Justice presented by Amnesty International.
