    Photographer Joshua Kissi on Connecting Africa and the Diaspora Through Art

    This week we are joined by Bronx-born photographer Joshua Kissi, who recently collaborated with Nike to release a special Black History month campaign that has the internet buzzing. Kissi first hit the scene as ½ of Street Etiquette, a men’s fashion and lifestyle blog. He is now the Co-Founder of TONL, a photo stock gallery that represents a diverse array of skin complexions and lifestyles. I sat down with Kissi in his home in Queens to discuss his experience as a Ghanian-American capturing cultural moments both in Africa and in the diaspora and the importance of artists approaching this work with integrity.
