Whitfield Lovell: Deep River
Whitfield Lovell, a 2007 MacArthur Fellowship winner, is internationally renowned for his thought-provoking images of anonymous African Americans from the 19th and 20th centuries. Using old black and white photographs taken in the early and mid-twentieth century, and more recently, imagery from contemporary sources, the Bronx born and raised artist pays tribute to his ancestors by spiriting them into the present.
Lovell's artwork is filtered through his personal history and memories. His father is a self-taught amateur photographer who constantly took candid and posed shots of his family and friends; these family photos, combined with Lovell's extensive travels throughout Europe, the Americas and parts of Africa have inspired much of his work.
