Brooklyn based photographer, Russell Frederick, will be presenting his exhibition entitled, “Dying Breed: Photos of Bedford Stuyvesant” during the Photoville photographic events in Brooklyn from June 22 to July 1. The exhibition documents a culturally diverse community at risk, raising the important issues of the evolution and potential breakdown of traditional neighborhoods.
“Russell Frederick is a photographer from Brooklyn whose global world view and keen understanding of the human condition informs his compelling photography. He works with film in medium format and shoots predominantly in black and white. Through his lens he subverts and disengages the current status quo and stereotypes of people of color internationally. He has photographed men, women and children from Bed Stuy, Brooklyn to Kingston, Jamaica. He has photographed the Lower Ninth Ward and the Bloods in Brooklyn. Russell Frederick tells the story while elevating and exposing the inherent beauty, dignity and honor in his subjects.”
