Black Artist (Studio View) (2002) is from a broader series of photographs entitled Black Light all photographed under the conditions of ultra-violet light. In this image Marshall portrays himself in his studio, leaning back in a chair whilst observing a painting he is working on. The painting is 7am Sunday Morning, a street scene in the Bronzeville neighborhood of Chicago's South Side, close to Marshall’s studio. This series of photographs – Black Light - has an inbuilt contradiction in its title as a way of considering ideas of visibility and invisibility in society, as well as raising an awareness of the conditions that frame our perception of others.
