As a reader and writer of the subgenre dubed "Steamfunk" I was wowed by the color and beauty of the images captured by Awol Ezriku in his Afropunk series showcased by Vogue Magazine. Who couldn't dream up fantastical worlds, cultures and characters with these wonderfully whimsical and dynamic pieces to guide them?
Vogue Magazine's slideshow captures the sound, fury and swagger of the Steamfunk/Afropunk style.
You can also experience the dynamic words that are equal to the images. The Steamfunk anthology edited by Milton Davis and Balogun Ojetade contains sixteen unique and imaginative stories dedicated to the era of steam told through the filter of the experiences of Americans of African descent.
