The men pictured in the exhibition were nominated from the Greater Muskegon area by a committee of their peers. Taliaferro is well regarded for photographic projects and published works, including Women of a New Tribe, a photographic study of the spiritual and physical beauty of black women, is one of his latest projects. This event is free and open to the public.
