List of street photographers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a list of notable street photographers. Street photography is photography conducted for art or enquiry that features unmediated chance encounters and random incidents[1] within public places. Street photography does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment. Though people usually feature directly, street photography might be absent of people and can be of an object or environment where the image projects a decidedly human character in facsimile or aesthetic.[2]

(soothing music) - Hello and welcome to the i3 Lecture Series hosted by the Masters in Digital Photography Program at the School of Visual Arts. We are thrilled to have photographer Russell Frederick as tonight's guest speaker. Born in Brooklyn and of Panamanian descent, Russell is best known for his long-term documentation of the life in his neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant. His many editorial clients include The New York Times, The Daily Beast, The Wall Street Journal, NBC News, The Associated Press, The World Photography Organization Magazine, Photo District News, Spiegel Magazine, Slate, New York Magazine, Ebony and The Amsterdam News. Among many other venues, his photographs have been exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum, The Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Rush Arts Gallery, The International Center of Photography, Addis Photo Festival in Ethiopia, The Goethe-Institut Ghana, Visa Pour L'Image, and The Shanghai International Photo Festival. Russell is also a proud member of Kamoinge Inc. I see a few familiar faces here tonight. Welcome, Kamoinge. It's an African-American photography collective known for its 50 plus years documentation of African diaspora. Beyond photography Russell dedicates his time to mentoring at-risk young men with the Kings Against Violence Initiative, where he is the Men's Program Director. So please help me welcome Russell Frederick to our Lecture Series. (audience applauding) - Good evening, everybody. Glad to see to you all, especially on this chilly night. I'm sure everybody would like to be home with the remote control in their hand, having some coffee or soup. Glad you're here. So I'm gonna take you all just on a little walk with me through the place that was my home for 18 years. I was born in Bushwick and my childhood and my adult years were actually spent in Bed-Stuy. I got my first apartment in Bedford-Stuyvesant at the age of 19, and I lived there until the age of 37. At the age of 19, Bedford-Stuyvesant, for those of you who don't know, maybe aren't familiar, it is the other black mecca on the opposite side of the bridge that leads to Harlem. So everyone pretty much around the nation knows that is Harlem to be the black mecca but Bedford-Stuyvesant also too has been rich in black culture. The list goes on and on. People like Lina Horne is from Bedford-Stuyvesant, Earl Grey is from Bedford-Stuyvesant, Jackie Gleason even lived in Bedford-Stuyvesant. That's right, the leader Jackie Gleason. A lot of you know Jay-Z, rapper Big Daddy King, Lenny Kravitz. I can go on, and on, and on, and on. Chris Rock, everybody knows. But for me, just to give you a little bit more of background, Bedford-Stuyvesant is always a place that never got, I think, a fair shake to the pioneers and the good people who made the community. Often just portrayed for its challenges and never really seen, I would say, for its virtues. So with some of the pictures you're about to see you're gonna see just my honor to the people who made this community. I started documenting the community in 1999. In 1997 was actually when I made my commitment to photography, so before this I was a architecture student. Always was, had artistic nature in me from childhood, but my family being from Panama and doing art work, they were like, art is a hobby, that is not a job. Not a career. So going through the channels of life architecture school, found that way too tedious for my brain, left that alone and actually got introduced to nursing, my mom was a nurse, and really enjoyed that, but I found that environment way too stringent for me. And picked up a camera, actually in 1995, had no idea what I was doing, didn't know the difference between a F-stop and a bus stop. (Russell and the audience laugh) And figured it out. In 1997 took an intro course at the International Center of Photography. Saved up my money, I read an article in Timeout Magazine about entering the black and white film, and I said, okay, I'm gonna just see what this is about. On the first day of class an instructor by the name of Bernard Blake, he told me I would be a great photographer. I never looked back, couldn't afford to go to school, so I just went to Barnes and Nobles like almost everyday, just looked through magazines, books, studying photos, taking pictures voraciously. And in 1999 I saw the writing on the wall about what's happening in Bed-Stuy right now. Everybody thought I was crazy at the time when I said that this community was gonna change. Everyone, people in the community were like, "Russell, this is the biggest black community in America. "Where all this people gonna go?" I said, watch. So I'm gonna introduce you to some other people. Enough talking, let's get to photos. I have quite a few to show you, but I can tell you pretty much a story with each photo but I know we don't have a lot of time, but I'm gonna give you a little bit of the background of some of the pictures. Photo over here was taken in 2006 or 2007, This is Super Nova Slump. He is a rapper, community activist, author. Also too retired national guardsman. He's also a Dream Director at the Future Project. He is also two parts Cherokee Indian. He had that, the feathers in his hair are acknowledging or representing his Cherokee heritage. The bees were actually red and blue signify unity, which means the blood in cribs gang. The Egyptian tattoos you see are pretty much his armage, you know, what to the ancestors. Moving on, so on this day it was like 90-something degrees, Supernova was feeling himself, he just came out the gym, and for the most part I pretty much had saw the advertisement on the back by the subway. This actually, for those who probably weren't in the community at the time, or in New York at the time, this was ad for TV One. So TV One, an all-black television network I believe with Time Warner or Cablevision, they started that this year, and this was their ad, I see black people. So, sometimes I just like to play off the words because they can have, add a little bit more body to a photograph, and just waited for the right moment and there you go. This is Maat Petrova. She's actually from Trinidad and Tobago. She is a mother of three, she is also a fitness instructor, and she is also a life coach. She got her Master's degree actually in 2013. Lived in Bed-Stuy for over 15 years, no longer lives in the community, now she is in Atlanta. Couldn't afford to stay in the community any more. Easter Sunday, Bed-Stuy, this is taken at the AME Methodist Church. This is over by Tompkins and Dicador, I believe, So right after Easter Sunday church, ladies actually from South Carolina, I just approached them, asked if I could take their picture, they were waiting for Acces A Ride, and there goes the photo. This is three generations. This is a Santadilla Church actually on Fulton Street, close to Bedford Avenue. So, this is actually grandma, daughter and granddaughter right before service. This image in 2007, and I believe the church is still there. This is Reginald Lewis, and on the left with very white beard. And his good friend of, I believe, 30 years. Can't remember his name right now but this was actually taken at 2014 at the 25th anniversary of the Spike Lee Block Party. Reginald Davis and the other brother have lived in the community for over 40 years. This is Shaun Flowers. Literally, that's her name. She is from Belize. Shaun is actually an educator. She was actually waiting for a taxi, and took this image in 2011. She no longer lives in the community, she now lives in Maryland. This is Also Sleive, originally from Houston, Texas. He is a photographer also too, he is a comedian. Did this image in 2010 on Howard Avenue. This is part of the series that I'm in an exhibit called the Dandelion Series. Cleveland Sampson. Cleveland is actually from Guyana, he is a carpenter and a actor. Took this image in 2010 as well. Chauncey Street on the J train. So, with my photos, again, everybody, is in trying to. Well, I also started this project was when I told people where I lived, a lot of people said to me, "Oh, you live in Bed-Stuy, "you must walk around with a bulletproof vest and a helmet". And when people told me this, and this was like in the early 2000s, '90s, I was pretty offended because I knew just what was always shown in the papers, was just one perspective. So to counter that, again, I just felt like the truth will be told just through the photographs. This is Salme Herlima. She's actually from Oakland, California. She is a Dream Director. Did this image in 2009, I believe. She's still here in Brooklyn. This is Nasademo Deodi. He is actually from Dominica. He is a artist, he is a jewelry maker, fashion designer, also carpenter. I know him and his wife moved out of the community, but I believe they're back in Brooklyn now. Nasademo and his wife, Noomi, expecting their first child. Did this image actually last year, 2015, and they gave birth to a healthy baby boy. Yes. This is Joshua Bealafia and his wife, Yaya. A lot of you may be familiar with her, she was a actress, she's a actress that was in the, what was the movie? The Butler. The Butler, she starred in The Butler. She was also on America's Top Model. And Joshua Bealafia is a filmmaker from the community. Yaya and Joshua expecting their first. Did this image actually in 2014. This is Ivory. Did this image in 2006, 2007. Ivory holding her goddaughter. It was a little hot, and she actually just got fed from the mother and Ivory was just being a good godmother. This is Jillo. Jillo is from the community, he's lived in Bed-Stuy all of this life. He's a proud father of three. Saw him walking down Jefferson Avenue. This is in 2007, he was with his three kids. Just picked up some of his children from daycare. And his daughter started having a tantrum. There we goes. Can't remember this young man's name, but did this image, this is on Macon Street. Took this in 2009 but he was with his father, and I remember him saying to his father, "Daddy, I'm a king". This is Supreme and TyShawn. Did this image in 2005. Supreme is actually TyShawn's actually stepfather, so they were going to be stepping out somewhere, I can't recall at the moment, but I was talking to Supreme about just the project that I was doing, and really trying to honor the good people and show the world really who we were. And he said to me that I could photograph him, and he mentioned about they were gonna be stepping out. So he was teaching TyShawn how to tie a tie for the first time. And during this moment, Supreme told me he loved being a stepdad 'cause a stepdad is a man who steps up to be a dad. This Michael Young. Michael Young was on his way to Sunday School with his father and his sister. Chased them down, from the back I saw him walking, I saw that hat and that suit was way too big for him from behind, so asked him if I could take his photograph. He said sure, his father took a family portrait, but in taking this picture I asked Michael, was this his first suit? And he said, "Yes", and he said his mom told him that he's gonna have to grow into this suit. This is, oh gosh, I believe her name is Natasha. It was her sweet 16. It was at my studio. She was actually waiting for her date, her date was late, and she was a bit nervous. This is Angel and his girlfriend. So Angel and his girlfriend were having a playful argument about texting and answering the phone. His lady was saying, "When I call you, you don't answer, "but when I text you you text me back. "What's the problem?" This was in actually 2011. And they broke up shortly after this picture. (audience laughing) Yes. I can't remember this young lady's name. Actually, was walking by, saw her on the steps, she was telling me about how she was gonna have to move, and it was just a really stressful time. And this is the image. Did this on Halsey Street. This was around 2007. This is Nunu. Actually saw her walking down the street with this t-shirt, asked her if I could take a picture of her. She said sure. A lot of times, when I photograph people, the vast majority of the time, I really try to give them a copy of the picture so I will email them or ask for the address, tell them I can send them print, tell them it's free. I always speak to the people, I pretty much wanna learn a story of everybody, and in honoring, you know, what everyone, I try to pretty much have a conversation with everybody. And just, you know what, hear this story about Beford-Stuyvesant. So with this image over here Nunu, when I sent her the photograph, she was extremely embarrassed. The young lady is actually her niece, and she thanked me for sending her the picture and she told me she threw out that shirt. (audience laughing) These are some Bloods. So, was walking down the street, this is on Franklin Avenue, 2006, 2007. So saw the young men but had my camera, and few of them just asked me if they could, well, no, two guys asked if I could take their picture, and I said sure, and when I said that sure to them all of these guys just jumped in line and just, you know what, posed. So this photograph, pretty important because a lot of you may hear of the Bloods, and their reputation. So with that I think, in just walking the streets with love, you pretty much when you walk with love, you walk with respect, people would treat you with that. If you walk the streets with fear then actually you know what will happen. Now, in photographing these young men I asked about four of them, what is it that made you join the gang? All of them said, "Safety and brotherhood." And in speaking to all of them, most of them pretty much had single-parent homes, some of them weren't even staying with their mothers, they were staying with some of these gentlemen, you know, in the gang. And they pretty much were just as their family. This is Cass. Cass actually is a rapper. Cass, this was at a Chinese restaurant on Troop by Halsey Street. So I was waiting for some Chinese food, Cass approached me with his CD, and he pulled out his CD and asked me if I could buy it, and when I looked at the CD it had some scribble on it, and I said, bro, would you buy this CD if you saw this in a store? And he said, "You're right, bro, I wouldn't". And I said, so this is what we're going to do. I'll photograph you, you give me the blessing to make, put the image in my book, and then you got the album cover. Deal. There he was. The police. This young man was just riding his bike, he actually jumped up on the sidewalk to go to Popeye's, since I heard him say he want to get some chicken. Cops stopped him, arrested. This is councilman Charles Barron. There was an incident. This was at the Bravo Supermarket. A mentally ill man well know in the community, can't remember his name right now, he had a breakdown in the supermarket. Cops were called. This picture speaks for itself, I think you know what happened. Charles Barron was trying to reason, not much success. This is Slim. Slim actually, was shot in the head. People tried to break into his apartment, he got shot in the head twice. This is his father by his bedside. His father lived in London. Slim actually lived, moved out of Virginia, and is actually having a pretty decent life. And he is a born-again Christian now. This friend of mine named Al. This was taken in 2001, Rikers Island. So Al's a good friend of mine, he was locked up unjustly. So in jail for two weeks, him and his girlfriend had got into a argument, she called the police, and after further investigation the cops dropped the charges, but he being locked up two and a half weeks. He ended up losing both of his jobs, and actually fell behind on his house, lost his house, and his life hasn't been the same since. He's currently trying to get like a kidney transplant. His life hasn't been the same since 2001. And, again, he was unjustly locked up. Timothy Stansbury, killed by the police. No weapon, no criminal record, in the Louie Armstrong houses over by Milstein Avenue close to Lexington. He was coming home from a party in the projects, a police officer was on patrol in the stairway, walking up the step, Timothy Stansbury entered the building from the rooftop, the projects are four stories tall, and they are all joined together. So a lot of people in development, they commute to different buildings though the rooftop, and when he entered, police officer was startled, shot him one time in the chest. He died, there was no trial, cop didn't even go to jail. That story continues. This is, can't remember this gentleman's name, but this was a tribute to the gentleman Timothy Stansbury. His street name was Drag, and this was a little tribute that the gentleman gave to him. This is Dr. Robert Gore. He's an emergency room physician at Kings County Medical Center. He's also the Executive Director of the Kings Against Violence Initiative, which I'm a part of, I'm the Men's Program Director. The Kings Against Violence Initiative is a intervention program geared to help at-risk young men and women in high school who are at risk of dropping out, at risk for violence. Dr. Gore has pretty much started the program because a lot of young men and women that he was seeing in the emergency room who are actually victims of a violent crime, they are at risk for another violent crime. There's a 50% actually risk for another violent crime to occur if someone comes in shot or stabbed. So we try to work with a lot of young men, women who are actually, you know, at risk, who may have some challenges at home, in school, some behavioral issues. We try to just meet them where they are, as just life coaches. And we started the program in 2011 with about six students, and now we have like almost 60 a week. Genoa Janni. Genoa Janni, this was taken actually at the former Black Panther office. Did this in 2009. Genoa is actually, I believe, I'm not sure if she's still a NYU adjunct professor, but I know she was. And she just... But, this storefront is obviously gone. Woman actually is from Gambia. Can't remember her name right now, but this was at the Tribute to the Ancestors ceremony. Can't remember her name right now but she lived in Beford-Stuyvesant, so just took this image. The Tribute to the Ancestors, for those who aren't familiar, it is a armage to all of those who died in the middle passage coming to America from Africa. And in Coney Island the second Saturday in July, there is this ceremony, which takes place in Coney Island, right down by the water. Drumming, very spiritual, it's been going on for, I believe, more than 30 years. Ramadan. So this is Bedford and Fulton. So this is Admashid Atacua. So, I also too, when documenting the community, I also just wanted to show the world a different image of Islam. Plenty of Muslims live in the community, I'm not a Muslim, but I've never liked the portrayal of a lot of the Muslim community. Really just to show the world how we all live together. And the men are outside praying at Ramadan for the eve, because the mosque gets so full that they actually start praying in the streets. So, Muslim women in the community. I believe these women are from Pakistan. So there was some activity down the block with the police. And I knew I didn't have much time, so I had to take the photograph, I knew that I couldn't really interact with the women, just being and learning about Islam that a lot of Muslim women aren't supposed to speak to man who is not a Muslim, so I knew I had just a few seconds to take the photograph, but it was an important image to take. And, there you have, showing the difference in generations. All right, this is Don Valadie. He's from Trinidad and Tobago. He's a fashion designer. He is everything that he's wearing he made. His clothing line is called Swag Star Nation. He did not make the Yankee fitted. This is actually on Franklin Avenue by Dekalb. So it's a tribute, the spray-painted mural is a tribute to a hometown hero, Notorious B.I.G. And for all of you who don't know him, you need to get some of that music. This is Akila Walker. Akila is from Jamaica. Jamaica the country, not Jamaica, Queens. All due respect. (Russell and audience laughs) And she's a Theology student. Did this image on Halsey by Milstein. This is Abba Griffiths. Abba Griffiths is a social worker, also too from Jamaica. Has her tribute to Nefertiti in her ears. And she too no longer lives in Brooklyn, moved out to New York, I believe in 2010. - [Attendee] Russell, can I ask you. - Sure. - [Attendee] You have this amazing knowledge of the community and how every so often you say, this person does not live in the community anymore. How do you stay in touch or how do you keep track of everybody's. - Whereabouts? I always try to, one, I give everyone my card, always walk with a business card. Also, two, during these early years before cellphones, really for me, I always walked around like a reporter's notebook, so I would keep notes, would try to email people. My phone number has stayed the same, so with that a lot of people had reached out to me, see me in passing, and with that I always try to develop relationships. So in sending people copies of the photographs I will keep in contact, but always in meeting anyone, I always just make it my business to learn who they are. So I really don't like to, I call it take-out, just take the pictures and run, I pretty much like to have, you know, some interactions because I wanna tell the story of people. I think it's, at least for me and the work that I do, I just think it's only the right thing to do. Good enough on that?. - [Attendee] Yes, okay. - This is Ian. Ian is actually IT guy. So he was having a cigar break. Did this image in 2014. He just finished shoveling some snow. This was on Troop. This is Alonso Dale, he is from Panama. Alonso is one of the most best-dressed guys in Bed-Stuy. Did this in 2010, that he's also part of the Dandelion Series. He's an event planner. And he's also, he was a co-founder of the clothing line called the Brooklyn Circus. There's some the clean brothers over here. So about three of these brothers lived in Bed-Stuy, and a few of them also from Harlem, this is also too part of Dandelion Series, which is just to show the world, I think, a whole other image of black men, and black men who were, you know, bringing back style or who pretty much are carrying the same dignity and sophistication that a lot of us did back in the '40s and the '50s, before hip-hop. This is Panama. He is actually from Panama, from Colon, Panama. He is a barber. Lived in Bedford-Stuyvesant for 30 years, no longer lives in the community. This is Kingsley, he is from Ghana. Kingsley is, grew up in Bedford-Stuyvesant, he actually lives still in Brooklyn. Married, he's also a designer, he has a clothing line called Privilege, and he's part of the Dandelion Series. Did this image in 2010 on Chauncey Street. This is Duke. Did this on Fulton Street, 2003. Saw Duke actually walking down the street, talking on the phone, and that cigarette did not fall, so. (Russell and audience laugh) I stopped him, I said, hey, bro, you gotta let me take a photo. And he said, "You got two seconds, I gotta go." He said, "You're not paying. Are you paying? "If you're paying you can take more pictures". So this was it. This is Uwa Ahgedo. Uwa is from the Edo Tribe, Nigeria. She is a fashion professor, she is a professor at FIT, and she's also used to be a model. She's wearing a ankara skirt, which is actually from her tribe in Nigeria. This is... Abdu, Abdu Sar. Abdu is from Senegal. Abdu actually drives a taxi, and he actually was just, it was real fresh one day, saw him walking on the street, and stopped for a photograph on Halsey Street. This was in 2010. This is Shawn Robertson. Shawn is a communications engineer. He was coming out of the Victorian Bed and Breakfast. Saw him coming out, he was too clean, and I just stopped him, asked if I could take a picture, he told me I have five minutes, he was gonna send an email and then he had to go. The Victorian Bed and Breakfast actually has been on the market for $6 million. It's a black woman who owned it. She bought the house actually in the '80s for $300,000. This is Pops. Pops is a retired bus driver. Did this is on Fulton Street, took this around 2007, 2008. Pops is well known for greeting everybody. He sweeps, keeps the neighborhood clean. And this was Pops's phone. If anybody wanted to use that payphone you had to see Pops. (Russell and audience laugh) This Mr. Thomas, he's from Virginia. He worked for the Department of Welfare for 25 years, retired. He's also a record producer. He's standing with his pride and joy, his 1974 Cadillac. Did this image last year. Mr. Thomas I think is the only man in Brooklyn still with the Jheri curl, okay? (Russell and audience laugh) Can't remember this brother's name right here, but he pulled up to a light. This is actually on Fulton by Breeward. Saw him in the car, I came to the window, asked him if I could take a photo, he said, "Brother, you have one minute. "When that light turns green, I gotta go". There goes the picture. (Russell and audience laugh) This is Mr. Rodriguez. And Mr. Rodriguez in on the right. And I'm having a brain cramp right now with the other brother in the back. But, Mr. Rodriguez is actually a retired factory worker from Puerto Rico. The other brother's name, he is a retired porter actually from Cuba. I can't remember his name. Did this image in, actually, 2013, I believe. This is by Gates Avenue. So they had just met at the bodega for the first time, they hadn't seen each other in the winter time, and they were just coming out for a warm day. Can't remember this brother's name. Saw him walking down the street. I do remember that he was coming from Granada. Stopped him, again did this image in 2007. Very timely. The back of the t-shirt. And I do remember he's a case worker for his organization, also his occupation. This is T. T actually was a boxer. Was struggling with addiction issues and actually did some time on Rikers Island, got into a fight on Rikers Island, and someone hit him in the eye with a padlock, and he was, his retina became deattached, he's been blind in his right eye, and he's just trying to make it day by day. Jazz musicians. This is on Nostrand Avenue and Hancock. So the saxophone player actually lived in the building for 30 plus years. Was from the community and played jazz pretty much to greet people in the summer time as they're walking on the streets around maybe 8:00 a.m. to around noon. And as the community start to become more gentrified, landlord was actually threatening him about how he had to go, and then there were actually complaints about noise pollution from some of the newest neighbors, and they were told they had to get a permit to actually play jazz. So he stopped playing jazz, and eventually, you know what, (mumbles) I found that he was pushed out. This is Moe. Moe is from Bed-Stuy. Went to the Air Force four years, this was him returning from Afghanistan. This is his house where he grew up at, and now Moe works for Con Medicine as a splicer doing well. Did this image in 2003. This was on Fulton Street close to Marcy by restoration. So saw this woman coming down the street, I couldn't believe my eyes. I knew I didn't have much time to talk to her, took the photo, and actually her husband confronted me. Asked me about what am I doing, and I said, good intentions, and I just doing a book on the neighborhood. And told him I could give him a copy of the picture, and he said he didn't want one. And I said, well, I will like to give you one, offered him my card, he said, "Keep it". And he said, "As long as this is positive it's okay", and he said, "As long as it's positive it's okay, "but next time don't photograph my wife unless you ask." (Russell and audience laugh) Brother, I believe his name is Mr. Johnson. So Mr. Johnson worked for NBC for 20 plus years, got laid off, worked in the cafeteria, couldn't find another job, and with him not being able to find another job he's trying to make ends meet. Worked six days a week, 14 hours a day, just actually getting bottles and then take 'em to the supermarket to just get some money. Window shopper. Nostrand Avenue, close between Fulton Street and Herkimer. Did this image in 2011. It's actually my grandfather. Did this image in 2007. Getting ready for church. The call of the prayer. So, did this image around 2004. So for those of you know, I mean Muslims, you know, they pray five times a day, and in the community there is pretty much like a call to prayer which comes off to, what would you call that? It's not an alarm, but pretty much it's announcement on a loud speaker throughout the community. And people, all the Muslims who're in the community they hear it, and they pretty much are given a pass from their employers to come to the mosque and pray. This is the halal Chinese restaurant. So, the sign says, no pork. So, saw the ladies waiting for their order and just had to take it, 'cause I knew a lot of people would not believe a Chinese restaurant not selling pork. (Russell and audience laugh) This is Vicky and Tony, actually together 20 plus years. This was their anniversary, wanted to take their pic, they wanted the picture taken, came to my studio. Sadly enough, Vicky passed away three years ago, and Tony has not been the same. This is Momma, that's her nickname, she's no my momma. This is on Brewood Place. So she, Momma, is well know for her laughter, for being a strong woman, and we all know that's not Pepsi in that bag. (Russell and audience laugh) Can't remember this brother's name. He just came out of his apartment building, this on Nostrand Avenue, he was on his way to a baby christening, and just told me that as long as I could take a good picture I could take his picture. This is Ronnie. Ronnie is a retired marine, she's also accountant. She also does jewelry and hair stylist. She did this image in 2009 at my studio. She no longer lives in Brooklyn, Ronnie now lives in Florida. This is Big Franco, this is on Fulton Street. Big Franco had just picked up his chain. He was real happy. (Russell and audience laugh) This is Stacey Mohammad. Stacey Mohammad is a filmmaker and a writer, originally from New Orleans. She moved to Bedford-Stuyvesant because she was inspired very much by Spike Lee, and did this image in 2014. I believe, they moved out of Bed-Stuy as well. She now lives Atlanta. And that's her dog Ziggy. This is Rachel. Rachel's from Haiti. She is a dancer, mother of two. I just finished photographing Rachel and she was just looking at some of the photos, and this was actually the best picture. She was looking at the pictures in her bedroom. This was in 2009. Rachel too no longer lives in the community, she lives in Florida. Can't remember this brother's name. This was in Stuyvesant Park, he was playing some music on his instrument. It's not a Kora. I forgot the name of the exact instrument but it's pretty much like a handheld piano. (faint statement from audience) Thank you, thank you, thank you. And did this image in 2007. This is, again, Abba Griffiths. Took a picture of her, she was actually, you see, getting some coconut, from a Dominican guy who actually sells a lot of fresh fruit from his hometown. This is on Fulton Street by Bedford. Did this in 2007. This is Nigra Sit. Nigra Sit is from the island nation, Haiti. She is a third generation seamstress. Did this at her studio on Nostrand Avenue, 2009. She no longer has the studio, no longer lives in Bed-Stuy. She is uptown in Harlem right now. This is Kepra. Kepra originally from Dallas, Texas. This is at her place, actually on a deck. Kepra is a mother of three, and she had wanted me to take a nude of her, and this was the photograph. Did this in 2011. This Kaxmi. Kaxmi is from Haiti. Kaxmi at the age of 15 was diagnosed with bone cancer and going through a treatment, she beat it. At 16 she was diagnosed with lung cancer, and in going through that treatment, the bone cancer came back, and doctors said that she had to have her leg amputated. And getting her leg amputated Kaxmi still graduated from high school one time. And I took this picture in 2011. And six months after this photograph she graduated from city college, got her a degree in international studies. She was actually, she has a prosthetic leg, walks with crutches. And right now, Kaxmi is a model, making a living. God bless her. This is Ronnie, right before Ronnie moved out, the woman we saw in my studio in 2009. I did this image in 2011 or 2012. Ronnie was expecting, and reached out to me, and asked if I could take this photograph right before she left Brooklyn, and moved to Florida. This is on Green Avenue. Gail Johnson from Jamaica, expecting at my studio, was expecting her first child. Gail also too did this image in 2009. Gail also too lives in Florida. This is J'ouvert. For those of you who don't know that is the pre-festival to the West Indian Day Parade by Eastern Parkway. If you want a good party go to J'ouvert. These are some guys who just trained and love themselves. This is on Eastern Parkway, West Indian Day Parade. Also another good reason to go to J'ouvert, all right? Eye candy, all right? This is Emma, Emma is from Ghana. Saw Emma on Fulton Street and was trying to get a photograph of her. She was refusing, I had to walk and convince her for three blocks until we finally got to her door, and I said, just one picture, please, just one. And she said, "If you leave me alone, you have the picture." This was the photograph, she loved the photo, I gave her a copy, she was extremely happy, then wanted me to photograph her some more. (Russell and audience laugh) This is Ruddy Roye. A lot of you may be familiar with him, photographer, good friend, also Kamoinge brethren. This is his firstborn son, Messiah. This is in 2007. Actually on the steps of our apartment, we were neighbors for one year. Ruddy's from Jamaica. This over here is Akima Japa. Akima is originally from Florida, been in Brooklyn for a good while now. She is a fashion designer, she has clothing line called Harriet's Alter Ego. Did this image in 2006 or 2007. That's her daughter, Zinga. I was photographing her and then Zinga got hungry, I asked her if it was okay, and there goes the picture. This is Tima, who is a hairstylist, and Coco. Tima is from Brooklyn, Coco, on the left, was actually from Trinidad. Coco is a model, did this image in 2014 at the Akwaaba Mansion. This is King Lion from Jamaica. He's a Rastafarian and a vegan chef. And that's him with his proud daughter, Queena Manga, at 2014. These are some sick boys, actually from a gentleman who used to own a shop, by a gentleman by the name of Paul, who was actually from India. Paul had five businesses in the community but with the changes coming to Bed-Stuy he no longer has his businesses. I believe he has only one business, he pretty much sold a lot of traditional clothing from India, but business has changed, he said a lot of his customers pretty much have disappeared and he's had to downsize. Kids being kids, some Muslim kids in the community right outside the mosque. This is on Bedford Avenue and Fulton Street. This was Easter Sunday. (Russell and audience laugh) 2004, 2005. I had my camera and he posed. Here it is. Grandfather with his grandchildren. Around 2005. Can't remember this woman's name, this was Palm Sunday, at Janes United Methodist Church on Malcolm X Boulevard and Monroe Street. Trying to remember her name but I know she was waiting for a taxi, but I know she passed away as well. This is Mr. Dabney Montgomery. He was a actually a Tuskihi Heirman. So he is actually was in the neighborhood, and met Mr. Dabney Montgomery. He's actually from Harlem but when I met him he told me about, he had some time in Bedford-Stuyvesant and he told about he liked me to photograph him with his medal of honor that he got from George W. Bush. And there goes the photo. This Mr. and Mrs. Pritchet. Mr. and Mrs. Pritchet they have been married, this was their 50th wedding anniversary. They met at Morgan State College. Mr. Pritchet was a chemistry instructor, and Mrs. Pritchet was one of his students. Scandal. (Russell and audience laugh) They moved to Bed-Stuyvesant 40 plus years ago, and this was their last photograph together. Mr. Pritchet died, I did took this image in 2010. He passed away in 2012. And Mrs. Pritchet was a retired probationary officer for the city of New York. This is Mr. and Mrs. Brooks, one of my favorite pictures. So, took this image around 2003. So I saw Mr. and Mrs. Brooks, they were about to cross the street, this was around Fulton Street, I believe around Quincy. And approached Mr. Brooks, and just asked if I could take their photo. Mrs. Brooks told me, "No" before I could even finish speaking. (Russell and audience laugh) And Mr. Brooks, I didn't give up and I said to Mr. Brooks, I said, sir, I'm doing a book on the neighborhood, and I would really love if I could take your photograph 'cause I'm honoring the pioneers of this community. And he said, "You're doing a book?" And I said, yes, sir. He said, "You're gonna do a book?" And I said, yes. And he said, "You can a take our photo." Mrs. Brooks cut her eyes, and Mr. Brooks I think he said, "Just straighten up, smile for the man." This was the photograph, I sent them a copy of the picture. Didn't hear no response, but three years later I got a call from their daughter asking me if I had anymore copies of the photo. I said sure, sent them a copy. She told me that her dad had passed away, and this was their last photo together. And then Mrs. Brooks got on the phone and said to me, "You know what, young man? "I really wanna thank you for just pushing "to take that picture." She said, "I didn't feel I looked presentable, "that's why I didn't want my picture taken, "but that picture is a nice memory "of what marriage is all about, trusting your partner." And she said, "I'm so glad I trusted my husband, "that was our last photo." She said, "I wish you the best of luck with your book." And then when I sent the new picture I got a thank you card in the mail with $5 to buy a roll of film. (Russell and audience laugh) And that's the last photo. Hope you enjoyed Bedford-Stuyvesant. (audience clapping) - You guys, we have time for a brief Q&A. I'll pass the mic around. It doesn't amplify your voice, it won't make it louder, but it's important for the video, so please use it. - [Attendee] Thank you for sharing your work with us, I mean, great work. I'm from Brooklyn, and I've been living there for 43 years, and I've seen the neighborhood changed from when I grew up to now. I want to know, what is the emotional cost to you for doing a project like this? - The emotional cost? - [Attendee] Yeah. - Boy. I can say there are, it pretty much fluctuates, I mean there are plenty of times where I just feel extremely proud on many levels. For one, just committing to do it, choosing to do it, as well as taking the time to meet people, to... And I can't tell you how many people who I've photographed, who was just so thankful that I even wanted to take a picture of them. So, the significance of pretty much being, I think, the author of our own story meant a lot to me. But, it has also come with a lot of sadness, a lot of hurt, going to the community and, as you could see, how many names, how many people are missing and then businesses gone. Culture changing, people, you know what, just nervous about, are they gonna be able to stay? It has pretty much, I would say, buoyed me in some ways just knowing what's been happening, what is happening, to just keep on doing the work, keep on actually honoring the people, get the story, get the work out to actually different audiences. Because I think, you know what, it's just important as the community is changing, and just for people to learn this part of history. And for all the people who are just moving into community. Also to the international community who pretty much doesn't see, you know, a positive depiction of black America. It's super important for people, I think, and even those of us who were here, to see, you know, positive images of ourselves. So, it is one positive reinforcement, it's honor, it's sadness, but, you know what, it's all done with love. And with that I really can just give thanks, really, to all of those who've trusted me with their image. So, I mean, everybody who has just given me some of their time where I was just a young man with just passion and a dream, and with good intentions. And for me this work is really about the people, you know? So, in everyone in here seeing, you know, we're getting to learn more about who is Bed-Stuy, who is made of Bed-Stuy, and all of these good people who have been slandered. For me, I don't wanna take any credit, I just ride the wave, and just pretty much make it my business to honor the community. I don't know if that's a good enough answer, bro, but-- (Russell laughs) Great, okay, thank you. What's your name? - Patrick. - Patrick, glad you're here, Patrick, thank you. - [Attendee] Hey, Russell. - Hey, what's going on, bro? - [Attendee] What's up? So, two small questions. The first is, how is your Panamanian ancestry informed your work. And from the standpoint of process, what have you learned about your own craft, about your own process, your own artistry through this whole journey? - Being Panamanian in the community, being Panamanian. There is so much I would say to it 'cause family from Panama, also too with a lot of strong links to Jamaica, Barbados. And being an immigrant, and knowing the story of a lot of people of immigrant backgrounds, I've always felt, you know what, it is just a purpose of mine in picking up the camera, and actually a responsibility to be sensitive to those who, I think, are often again, who don't maybe get a fair shake and how, or don't even get a chance to even speak or feel, a little bit nervous to speak about where they may come from, and their destiny and their purpose. So, as a Panamanian, my family come into this country 1965, me being first generation born here I felt that I had to take on, you know what, part of activism, and I would say this work is visual activism. You know what, at least for me, I hope it is for you, that someone from the community, I think, needed to tell. As opposed to thinking about how the story has been told from a lot of people who've had good intentions but just maybe have missed the mark culturally because you know what, the culture just is not one that they have lived and they know. And in terms of my process, my process has pretty much just evolved according. So, from when I first picked the camera, again, not knowing what I was doing, not knowing any history about photography. But then, I could say coming into Kamoinge, I got a schooling like I couldn't have gotten anywhere else. So, between Kamoinge and working at the Associated Press, these were actually two training grounds that just gave me perspective from many different levels. From one, with Kamoinge, I would say is learning the importance of honoring your people, of us being taking doing work with compassion, taking time to actually develop a story, to do it from a place of dignity. From The Associated Press, learning about storytelling, learning about editing, learning also to just how to get work out there. And then meeting just several people along the way, having some still time, and even when you are having one of those moments when you're in the valley, and you're in the valley, and you aren't sure whether you should be doing this. You're not making no money, your girlfriend's telling you to get a job. You know what, you aren't supported. But this is where your heart is, this is really your love. And when you find that sense of purpose and that sense of fulfillment, there is no substitute, there is no alternative. And with that process right there of fulfillment, I go on, I get some inspiration, I get some encouragement, whether it may be from peers, whether it may be going to an exhibit, and just also to being a sponge for information, always learning, never getting full of myself no matter how good I am, that you know, wherever there's good there's better, you know? No matter where you may be. So, with that, you know what, Gordon, is always thinking about how can I tell a better story, how can I add on to the work. And, yeah, there you go, bro. (Russell and audience laugh) Good enough? We talk later. (Russell laughs) - [Attendee] Let me just say that you have a gift with the camera, and you also have a gift of just making people feel good and wanna do good work. So we thank you for the inspiration. Great work is always-- (Russell makes a faint statement) I've always been interested in how we as individuals visualize home, how we define home, and in light of how it changes, but also with respect to how we change through time. And I know that you've spent some time in Ethiopia, so spent some time away from home. And I'm wondering, how was your perspective changed? Do you wanna tell different stories? What do you value about home now that you've spent some time away from home? - Great question, great question. So, for those of you who don't know, so brother Jevaly over here. I spent almost six months last year between Ethiopia, South Sudan. So in Ethiopia, I was teaching photography, I was doing some workshops, actually, with UNESCO. And pretty much just empowering, educating a lot of Africans to be the authors of their own story and showing them the value of doing work based on their community. And going there, and seeing for one just, oh man, just humility, passion for life, determination and will, that you see people who have, I would say, they don't have the same infrastructure, and access to resources that we do, and not the same liberties that we have, or freedom that they have of speech, and even to photograph, to making photographs over there is particularly tough, particularly because of images that just came out of Ethiopians during the famine. A lot of Ethiopians are eve resistant to even their own people photographing them. So, in going over there, it humbled me even more to take time, to get to know people. It also made me just think about just really how blessed, and thankful I am for just all the people who trusted me with their image. It made me even more committed to the image and being there. In going there also too, it just lit a spark again about the importance of giving back, and developing others. And how in being from this community I have a responsibility to make my community better, and not just even through photography. So being in Ethiopia and seeing how people are very much, particularly in Addis. Just seeing how there's just a love that is just really unspeakable. I mean, you just, oh man, it's something you need to experience. It's one thing I say for everybody. And going there first time, going to Africa, and seeing Lucy, learning about my ancestry, and learning about pride again, it was another ingredient for how I have to honor our community. Good enough, Jevaly? Thank you, bro. - [Attendee] All right. - Thank you, bro - [Attendee] I know that you've had many mentors, and among those mentors was Gordon Parks. I would have loved to have been the fly on a wall when you had the opportunity to meet him. I was wondering if he had any words of encouragement that may have influenced your life, and your style of shooting. - You just put all my business out there, Mark. Yes, well, Mr. Parks, one of the word of Mr. Parks in 2003, 2004, and had the privilege of meeting him, one of our Kamoinge, our Kamoinge president, Adger Cowans actually set up a interview, actually made the introduction, and he welcomed me, invited me to his home. Boy, oh, boy, I felt like I met Jesus, quite frankly. In meeting him, I can only say just how thankful I was to have a opportunity to talk with him. And at that time when I met him I was working at the Associated Press. He asked me if I shot for the Associated Press, and I told him, no, and he said, "What's their problem?" He just told me, you know what, I showed them this same work, and he told me I was a fine photographer. He said to me just to never give up. He said, "Never give up, "no matter what may happen. "You know what? The industry does not define you. "Let your work define you." That was some incredible advice, and he even gave me a letter of recommendation when I applied for a position, a photography position at AP that I did not get, just to let you know. (Russell and audience laugh) But he gave me a letter of recommendation. There you have it, Mark. - [Host] I wanna just add something to that question. We have John Edwyn Mason joining us for i3 Lecture Series, November 15, and he's gonna spend the entire lecture talking about the legacy of Gordon Parks. So, please join us again in a few weeks, November 15. John Edwyn is coming especially to New York City to talk about Gordon Parks. He's writing what is probably gonna be the book, the definitive book on Gordon Parks's legacy. So, we're really excited about that. I wanna thank Russell Frederick. That's all the time we have tonight, but what a great lecture. Thank you. (audience applauding)
