Delphine Diallo

Home is a reflection of who we are. Brooklyn is home to some of the most interesting people and eclectic design styles in the world. In collaboration with Mae B. Films, we are excited to announce the launch of AphroChic TV and a new series that sets out to find Brooklyn’s Modern Soulful Style. Homes of Brooklyn is a monthly series where we’ll be talking with artists, fashion designers and tastemakers in their own spaces. Our first stop: touring the home and studio of Brooklyn-based, French-Senegalese photographer, Delphine Diallo. We fell in love with Delphine’s soulful black and white photos on Instagram and PurePhoto.com, and with her pictorial exploration of evolving femininity and global identity. Truly an artist on the cutting edge of photojournalism, we are thrilled to take you inside the space that fosters her creativity. Click play to tour Delphine’s home in Bushwick.
