Liz Johnson Artur is a Ghanaian-Russian photographer and photojournalist based in London. For over three decades, her work has documented the lives of black people from across the African Diaspora. She calls this ongoing project the Black Balloon Archive, alluding to a 1970 song lyric by Syl Johnson that describes a black balloon ‘dancing’ in the sky, which is how Johnson Artur imagines her own movement when taking photographs.
This publication showcases Time don’t run here, a series of photographs of the Black Lives Matter protests taken in the summer of 2020 in London.
