Mathieu Bitton: “Darker Than Blue”

Darker Than Blue features people going about their daily routines in New York City, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Paris, the Bahamas, and New Orleans. The show as a whole is representative of Bitton’s “always-on” photography style, resulting in high-contrast, high-grain images.

The title of the exhibition, like the style of the photographs, carries on the tradition of documenting black history, subtly connecting the past to the present. Darker Than Blue references a 1970 Curtis Mayfield lyric from the Civil Rights-themed, “We People Who Are Darker Than Blue.”
