Jeff Sonhouse's upcoming exhibit at the Tilton Gallery is called 'Pawnography'; somewhat appropriately, it explores the changing role of the black male in society through mixed-media paintings and drawings.

Each portrait in Jeff Sonhouse's 'Pawnography' depicts a black male in drastically different settings. There is the black politician, the brand-obsessed individual, the pimp, and the paisley and platinum-obsessed young adult.

Jeff Sonhouse's 'Pawnography' will be displayed at the Tilton Gallery through December 23.

Implications - If you have the chance to check out the exhibit at the Tilton Gallery, I would highly suggest it. After all, with a name as cool as Pawntography, you know this exhibit by Jeff Sonhouse is going to be a site to see! The drastically different setting chosen for this shoot makes it even more eye-catching! Stats for Exploring Race Through Mixed Media Trending: Older & Chilly
