MY UPTOWN Profile: amani olu

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.
