Additional Information

Ajamu has generously produced a limited edition print, Untitled (Edition, from the Circus Master Series), 1997/2021, especially for Tate on the occasion of his work being acquired for Tate’s collection of British art. Ajamu has revisited his iconic series Circus Master, 1997, to produce as a silver gelatin print in a bespoke presentation box.

On why he selected this historic work, Ajamu says:
'It captured something I was thinking about deeply around S&M and kink, and the model at the time was a boyfriend of mine. I like that the images are very gentle, and historically I don’t see many images of Black men like that. For those of us who are out about being into kink, what is missing is a conversation around intimacy and gentleness within something that might appear quite violent and aggressive'.

Prices of the artwork are liable to change. As a limited edition sells out, prices of the artwork are subject to increase and the price will be clearly indicated.

About the Artist

Ajamu (b. 1963, Huddersfield, UK) is one of the leading photographers of his generation. He gained international recognition in the mid-1990s with his touring solo exhibition Black Bodyscapes that focussed on the black body through fetishism and the male nude. He is the co-founder of the award-winning rukus! Federation and the rukus! Black LGBTQIA+ Archive and is one of a few leading specialists on Black British LGBTQ+ history, heritage and cultural memory. He studied at the Jan van Eyck Akademie, Maastricht and is currently a PhD candidate at the Royal College of Art, London.

Ajamu’s work has recently been the subject of a solo exhibition, Ajamu: Archival Sensoria, at Cubitt’s Gallery, London, UK, 2021, and has been included in exhibitions internationally, including Kiss My Genders at Hayward Gallery, London, UK, 2019; Get Up Stand Up at Somerset House, London, UK, 2019; and On Our Backs: The Revolutionary Art of Queer Sex Work at Leslie Lohman Museum, New York, US, 2019. Ajamu’s work will be included in the display Sixty Years: The Unfinished Conversation at Tate Britain, 2021-2023. Ajamu recently published a limited edition artist book titled: AJAMU: ARCHIVE (2021).
