Suzun Lucia Lamaina Revolutionary Grain

A collection of contemporary portraits
and stories of former members
of the Black Panther Party

Suzun Lucia Lamaina, BFA, MA is an independent scholar, social documentary photographer, teacher and photographic historian. Her work focuses on portraiture that reveals the interconnectedness of her subject’s essence and the environments in which they live. A former colleague and student of Farm Security Administration photographer, John Collier, Jr., Suzun is acutely aware of the visual language of photography and the role it plays in providing a discourse about visual communications.

Her forthcoming book, “Revolutionary Grain: Celebrating the Spirit of the Black Panther Party in Portraits and Stories,” will be published in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary of the Black Panther Party in October, 2016.
