About King Me
The inception of King Me started in Cincinnati, Ohio and made its first debut in February of 2016. Ninamdot’s exhibit, King Me, was the 2016 recipient of the People’s Liberty grant. People’s Liberty is a grant foundation that invests in Cincinnati residents who have innovative ideas to create change. As a recipient of this grant, King Me was placed on display at The Globe Gallery for three months.
About Nina “Ninamdot” Wells
Ninamdot continues her mission to restore the black male image through King Me and remains encouraged as she connects with black men around the world. This mission is important and is rooted in a strong passion to not only spread love for black men, but also elevate their image. The quality in her work is shown through her connection with her subjects. She does more than photograph Kings, she connects with them as well.
