Honoring a legend

Written by admin   // December 7, 2012   // 0 Comments

Local photographers who were influenced by the late “visual griot” Harry Kemp participated in a one-night-only photo exhibit showcasing their work at the Wisconsin Black Historical Society/Museum Friday. The exhibit was the first ever exhibition honoring Kemp, who was known as “Black Milwaukee’s Gordon Parks.” Also on display were photographs Kemp himself took and a documentary of him and his work. The photographers present at the exhibit were (seated front, left to right): Patricia Milner, Yvonne Kemp (Harry’s sister and one time apprentice who took over his business after his passing), and Victoria Gross.
