NotWrong is the new oversized bi-yearly publication by Founder Kris Graves and Creative Director Luke Atwood Abiol, NotWrong will work with photographic artists to illustrate stories of gentrification, race, power, and discrimination.

Our inaugural NotWrong. + No1 is a project by Kris Graves and Author Thomas Chatterton Williams entitled A Bleak Reality. Originally published on Vanity Fair’s Hive, this oversized monograph takes us to eight locations where young black men were murdered by police officers. All eight murders were caught on camera and became viral videos online.

A Bleak Reality documents eight sites of the murder of unarmed black men at the hands of the police. While each one represents a single life and death, the photographs speak to the greater epidemics of institutionalized racism and violence against the black community, and black men in particular. These social divisions and a startling lack of empathy are compounded by the perpetuation of denigrating and dangerous stereotypes. Graves is able to evoke a person—a life—by the absence of the figure, and creates a powerful, disquieting statement: this is a reality not only measured in numbers or statistics but in individual lives. “ + Samantha Marlow
