The Boca Raton Museum of Art in Florida, USA is hosting Reginald Cunningham’s debut photography exhibition. Curated by Kelly Bodle, Black Pearls is a photography project dedicated to the people of Pearl City - a historically black neighborhood with generations worth of stories to share. 

One of Cunningham’s goals for 2021 was to secure a solo exhibition so when Boca Raton commissioned this project he jumped at the opportunity. Previously he’s been published on the front cover of Vogue where he photographed his activist wife, Brittany Packnett Cunningham for the September 2020 issue which focussed on hope and activism.
