Bully is a 17-year old drill rapper from Almere Buiten, The Netherlands.

This project is a collaboration between him and me, I researched the visual representation of black male rappers while taking Bully as an example. This project is about looking, reflecting, seeing and realizing. If you’re treated a certain way you become a certain kind of person. If certain things are described to you as being real, they’re real for you whether they’re real or not. How do we deal with imagery and how does it affect black boys?
