Working together : Louis Draper and the Kamoinge Workshop

"Inspired by the archive of Richmond native Louis Draper, VMFA has organized an unprecedented exhibition that chronicles the first twenty years of the Kamoinge Workshop, a group of African American photographers he helped to found in 1963. More than 180 photographs by fifteen of the early members--Anthony Barboza, Adger Cowans, Danny Dawson, Roy DeCarava, Louis Draper, Al Fennar, Ray Francis, Herman Howard, Jimmie Mannas Jr., Herb Randall, Herb Robinson, Beuford Smith, Ming Smith, Shawn Walker, and Calvin Wilson--reveal the vision and commitment of this remarkable group of artists. When the collective began in New York City, they selected the name Kamoinge, which means "a group of people acting and working together" in Gikuyu, the language of the Kikuyu people of Kenya." -- Publisher's website
