Anvers / Belgium
Based in Antwerp, Dandy Fuego started working with photography in 2016, quickly realising that analogue photography was a perfect fit for him. Capturing portraits, either staged in a studio or outside, his photographs depict strong and seemingly nonchalant characters.
Dandy uses photography as his tool to show black people in a positive light. Dandy aims to transform the narrative of pain and oppression often surrounding black people. He believes that there is a need for more positive representation in the media. Young people need new roles to identify themselves to and exist away from the negative stereotypes that have been imposed onto them for generations. For Dandy, we need more black superheroes, and it is through his photographic practice that he emphasises that necessity and contributes to the fight against systemic racism.
