G-Shock and RESPECT. magazine have teamed up to showcase the work of some top, emerging art makers from across a variety of disciplines. The video series interviews four innovators: artist/sculptor Christophe Roberts, industrial designers Aaron Stathum and Eliot Coven and photographer Kareem Black. These individuals are exploring their own imaginations and finding new ways to their visions to life through their respective art forms. From sculpture, to photography to developing concepts for industrial design and products that improve our every day lives.
First up is Kareem Black, a Philly-bred photographer who burst onto the New York City photography scene at the tender age of 18. Kareem has shot everyone from Nas to Jenna Jameson and Leonardo DiCaprio in between. He has a gift for creating both bright, saturated images that capture the pop-culture personas of the people he’s shooting, and timeless, moving images that get to the very core and soul of his subject. No matter what the subject, setting or the mood you know that Kareem will deliver a stunning image that sends a clear message.
His unique perspective through the camera lens breathes life into his subjects, objects and surroundings. If a picture is worth a thousand words, Kareem’s pictures are worth millions.
