Cigar Aficionados by Laylah Amatullah Barrayn

Communion around cigars has been long standing among Black folks both stateside and globally. Laylah Amatullah Barrayan‘s portrait project highlights members of the cigar community in Brooklyn, New York while examining how communities of color commune around them.
