On June 3rd 2011, photojournalist and filmmaker Akintola Hanif will introduce HYCIDE, aphotography magazine dedicated to subculture, art and conflict.

“HYCIDE is about challenging elitist ideals and illustrating what’s really going on in the minds, hearts and lives of some of America’s finest yet forgotten people,” Akintola Hanif explains. “Through stories of survival and freedom our goal is to create understanding and empathy for the misunderstood while providing a visual and literary voice for the voiceless.”
