Call for vintage photos of dapper men

Passing along something that came my way that is one of curator Shantrelle Lewis‘ current projects:

dan·dy \ˈdan-dē\
n. pl. dan·dies
1. A man who affects extreme elegance in clothes and manners; a fop.
2. Something very good or agreeable

In observance of a long history of Black dandyism from Alabama, Harlem, Chicago to Brixton, Kingston, Havana to Port-au-Prince, Johannesburg, Lagos and Bamako, The Dandy Lion Project is pleased to announce its call for vintage photographs of the many men and boys whose swagger exuded timelessness.

They are looking for historic images of men of African descent from every corner of the world. They welcome submissions from the U.S., the Caribbean, Latin America, Europe and last but not least, the African continent. For guidelines and more info on submitting contact her at Deadline is September 30.
