Kamoinge Photographers Convey Black Experience
By THE NEW YORK TIMES
Kamoinge, a group of mostly New York photographers who strive to capture the black experience, are creating an archive of their work. The group first assembled in 1963 and now has 24 members, with some focusing on documentary work, others on fine art. They are all driven by a similar passion: honest portrayal. “What we’re documenting isn’t just black history,” said Russell Frederick, one of Kamoinge’s newer members. “It’s American history; it’s global history. It’s something that everybody needs to see.” Read and see more on the Lens blog.
