Welcome to the BlackLight: a partnership between AFROPUNK, Whalar Agency, and Fresh Tape Media. Through Blacklight, we’re super excited to amplify the work of up-and-coming filmmakers and digital storytellers. Christian Cody is a director and photographer raised in Atlanta, Georgia and is now based in Brooklyn, NY. As an image maker, he pulls inspiration from his environment and cultural nuances and fuses those inspirations into visual explorations of Black beauty. His intention is to push and expand the narrative of Black imagery in media and fashion. Since graduating from SCAD in 2016 with a BFA in Photography, Cody has worked with entities such as See in Black, Art Partner, H&M, Nordstrom and Billboard and has been featured in Vogue, GQ, Vogue Italia, V Mag, I-D, New York Magazine and other publications.
