amani olu (b. 1980) is not hard to miss in an art crowd and that is usually because he’s one of the only few black faces there. Nattily dressed, sporting a hi-top fade, bespectacled, big laugh, and even bigger projects. A ‘sartorialist’ in every sense of the word. Philadelphia’s Native Son has become a tastemaker of contemporary photography in New York City, constantly curating independent projects, publishing collector’s guides and producing new talent. But one thing is certain: olu knows what he knows because of what he has learned and UPTOWN learns, throughout our chat that is better to know than to not know at all.
