ABOUT KHALIK ALLAH

Born in 1985, Khalik Allah is a multi-faceted director, film-maker and photographer whose street photography is visually story telling at its grittiest. Shot in vibrant color film with an aged, grainy quality, Khalik's cinematic vignettes document hardscrabble life at the corner of 125th Street and Lexington Avenue in Harlem (New York City). His vision is like no other, with the bulk of his photographs captured in utter darkness relying solely on available light from neon signs, street lamps, and shop windows. When Khalik isn't documenting Harlemites, he can be found making films and directing music videos. Khalik shoots a vintage Nikon F2 with a 55mm f1.2 lens. See even more of Khalik's work on 750grain.com and tumblr.
