“The Darkest Colour” is an abstract representation and visual reimagination by Yannis Davy Guibinga

Yannis Davy Guibinga is a self-taught photographer known for portraits that highlight the diversity of African cultures and identities. His works are often richly hued, with subjects positioned against bright gradient backgrounds or adorned in warm tones. In his project The Darkest Colour however, Guibinga moves away from his multi-colored photo shoots to focus entirely on the color black and its relationship to darkness, mourning, and death. Guibinga is currently a student in professional photography at Marsan College in Montreal. You can see more of his portraits on his Instagram.
