  • Curatorial Statement

    Last month my trusted friend, wonderful client, and amazing attorney called to ask me if I had a list of Black artists/fine art photographers to share with a closed private group of female attorneys under the name "Lawmas." I thought, well that is easy, I can pull that list together in an hour with websites, galleries, etc. Then Lisa continued to ask if I would be interested in doing a Zoom presentation on collecting fine art photography. Of course I was honored to be asked and would love to talk to a group of art enthusiasts about the ins and outs as well as the nuances and beauty around collecting fine art photography. In my 6 years of working at Jackson Fine Art with founder Jane Jackson and additional 17 years of owning Jackson Fine Art, getting to know clients and teaching them about collecting has always been and remains one of my favorite parts of what I do.

     

    As I started to curate this presentation, the well-known artists were easy and I could list them without effort. But then I realized that in doing this I was just providing a list, and what I wanted to do was to look at what Black photographers are doing now and perhaps less of what is known in the photography world. It became evident that in my own roster of artists, I have a large number of female artists but few Black artists. In order to share with you a proper exciting list, I needed to consult the experts and my first call was to Andrea Barnwell Brownlee, the Director of Spelman College Museum of Fine Art. My second call was to Atlanta gallerist, Arnika Dawkins, owner of Arnika Dawkins Gallery, who I admire a great deal and who specializes in representing Black artists, as well as other emerging artists, and she is right here in my back yard.

     

    After that I began going down the rabbit hole of all of the Black artists that have come to me and I have admired over a number of years. I am proud to say that this exercise and challenge that Lisa tasked me with has opened my eyes back up to wonderful artists in my backyard, as well as Black artists who are excelling in their field. One of the artists I am featuring was actually in Atlanta photographing the unrest after Rayshard Brooks' death; a powerful image from that visit was featured in this past Sunday's New York Times. When you open your eyes and open the doors, the inspiration and excitement that I have experienced working on this project are nothing less than magical.

     

    What both Arnika Dawkins and myself have gathered for you is a "FIRST LIST OF 13 BLACK ARTISTS" we are currently passionate about. We created an online viewing room with bios and starting prices. Some of these artists are represented by Arnika Dawkins Gallery and others are represented by Jackson Fine Art, as well as by a few other galleries that both Arnika and myself work with. My hope is that this presentation is just the beginning of new relationships and new opportunities for the artists we are presenting and perhaps may turn into an exhibition or stronger relationships in the future. I want to thank you as the audience for challenging and inspiring us to create this for you. It has been an absolute pleasure.

     

    In addition to the online viewing room, we have pulled together a pdf of reading material, websites of established black artists that are more known to the photography world, and lastly, a list of books to collect. I hope you will be as inspired as we have been in curating this work.

    Thank you.

  • Ervin A. Johnson

    Ervin A. Johnson

    Ervin A. Johnson (b. 1987) utilizes photographic mixed media to reimagine his cultural and racial identity. His work speaks to the "racial violence and discrimination currently occurring across America, particularly in the form of police brutality." The faces captured in "#InHonor: Monoliths reference validation, representing not only individuals but in a more profound way the face of humanity. The hashtag in the title of his work is a purposeful nod to the viral nature of social media; also, an acknowledgment of the part social media has played in seeking justice in recent tragic events. Johnson's portraits speak to the pain of individuals and, more broadly, to the Black experience. Ervin A. Johnson is a native of Chicago.

    Gordon Parks (b. 1912), was a pioneer in both the worlds of photojournalism and  filmmaking. At the age of 25, Parks purchased his first camera and soon after joined  the Farm Security Administration, chronicling the effects of the Great Depression on the nation. When the FSA shuttered in 1943, Parks would go on to work for LIFE  Magazine making history as the publications first Black staff photographer and writer. In his photography, Parks strived to capture subjects tangential to race and 

    socioeconomics. During his nearly thirty years with LIFE, Gordon captured portraits  of celebrities and activists like Muhammad Ali and Malcom X, as well as some the most famous documentation of the Civil Rights Movement. Following his time with LIFE, Parks went on to pioneer Black filmmaking as the first African American to produce and direct major motion pictures. Parks continued to create photographs until his death in 2006, at age 93. ©The Gordon Parks Foundation

    Keris Salmon

    Award-winning broadcast journalist Keris Salmon (b. 1960), spent over a quarter-century at major networks, including ABC, NBC, the National Geographic Channel, and PBS before turning her camera to visual storytelling through a combination of words and still imagery. As an African-American woman married to a white man, a descendant of the family that owned the largest American tobacco plantation in the antebellum south, her work explores family histories and complex layers of relationships, unveiling the many significant links between black peoples’ past and present. In her series, We Have Made These Lands What They Are, a variety of voices, slave-owners, and slaves come together to form a solemn chorus to the dirge of American slavery resulting in a complexity of feeling and nuanced understanding of an institution that still defines us. 

    Salmon graduated from Stanford University and completed her graduate studies in Journalism at UC Berkeley. Salmon lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.

    Shawn Theodore

    Shawn Theodore (b. 1970) is an award-winning photographer whose work 

    blends the real and mythological as it explores African American and African Diasporic life within disappearing Black American neighborhoods. Set to the visual texture of Black life, Theodore’s work illustrates physical and spiritual resistance to systematic oppression and creates a metaphorical connection to African legacies and traditions while doing so.  After studying art, a chance meeting with legendary New York hip hop photographer, and future mentor, Jamel Shabazz enlivened Theodore’s motivation to photograph strangers. The work finds his subjects often in candid, solitary moments, both bathed in powerful sunlight and shrouded in shadow. In Shabazz’s word the work depicts its subjects as “relevant in a world where people of color are projected as unimportant, and irrelevant.”

    Mickalene Thomas

    Mickalene Thomas (b. 1971) work includes paintings, collages, photography, video, and installations that draw on art history and popular culture to create a contemporary vision of female sexuality, beauty, and power. Blurring the distinction between object and subject, concrete and abstract, real and imaginary, Thomas constructs complex portraits, landscapes, and interiors in order to examine how identity, gender, and sense-of-self are informed by the ways women (and “feminine” spaces) are represented in art and popular culture. Images courtesy of Yancey Richardson Gallery, New York City.

     

    Artworks start at $16,000
