The Washington D.C. native, who was also featured in Smithsonian Rock and Roll: Live and Unseen, will present an exhibition that will feature stunning images of her work covering live performances since 2011. Much of her work over the past seven years contains stunning images from domestic and international legends such as the late Prince, Solange, Miguel, Jeff Goldblum, The Roots, Seal, and Pharrell among many more.

“The lights, music and dance routines, all that energy was overwhelmingly beautiful to me…I wanted a way to capture that memory and each and every concert I attended that need grew stronger, my love for one fueled my love for the other,” said Ford, explaining her passion for concert photography.

The exhibition will be taking place at The Bishop Gallery in Brooklyn, NY on Sept. 1. Doors will open at 7 PM. For more of her work, peep here.

Mahershala Ali Addresses 'Green Book' Backlash After Golden Globes Win

Mahershala Ali took home the Golden Globe for Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his performance in Green Book on Sunday night (Jan. 7). Following his acceptance speech, Ali addressed the backlash regarding the film's plot.

Critics appeared to be upset about the film's storyline which depicted the true relationship between jazz pianist and composer Dr. Don Shirley (played by Ali) and Tony "Lip" Vallelonga (Viggo Mortensen). In the movie, Shirley, a black man from the deep South in 1962, hires an unemployed, white bouncer from the Bronx as his security to escort him during a the segregation era. During their journey, the two develop an unbreakable bond while confronting their differences. The backlash came after Shirley's family stated that the film and Ali's portrayal was inaccurate and filled with lies.

"I will say this," Ali said in response to the controversy, “my job is always the same: I have to look at what I am doing and be responsible for it."

He added: "I respect the family…and Doc Shirley. I spoke to the studio and the family and at the end of the day you wish everyone was happy and you don’t want to offend anyone in any capacity."

This is Mahershala Ali's first Golden Globe win. Check out his acceptance speech above.
