In no time, Dexter Ryan Jones has appealed to the souls and the minds of anyone in the New York scene who consider themselves fans of emerging underground art. Born in Brooklyn, he has a deep background in spoken word poetry and the performing arts. He gave birth to SirReal Photography in an effort to find a more behind-the-scenes way of expressing himself. Now using photography to tell his stories, he showcases his versatility as an artist using nature, a spectrum of saturated colors, and a number of references ranging from classic voices in Black American media to historic cultural/visual traditions found around the world.  
Dexter is one of the youngest artists to have work featured in the Fela Kuti exhibit at the Caribbean Cultural Center African Diaspora Institute (CCCADI), the Dandy Lion exhibit at MoCADA, Neekid Blk Gurls in the Rush Arts Gallery curated by Danny Simmons, and in 2013 Dexter was featured in his first solo art exhibition entitled, “Knight(ed)”.  He’s worked with such acclaimed artists as Dread Scott, Patra, Brian Kirhagis, Grammy Award Winners, Bridget Kelly & Arrested Development, Derrick Ashong of Oprah Radio, Aaron Hall and more.

She’s awake and she refuses to go to sleep.
It’s hard to get her to sleep
Especially when she’s this hungry.
She’s starving.
Taunted by her last meal
Deprived, she torments me to find her a lover
Find her a meal.
Put her to sleep like a babe engorged with mother’s milk.
Penetrate her monotony
Cure her of her distress
Comfort her.
I tie my hands
And wait for the storm of her displeasure to pass me as I writhe under her punishment.
I cannot breathe for,
She is awake.
