The Gordon Parks Foundation Awards Dinner and AuctionCelebrating The Arts & Humanitarianism June 6, 2017
Harriet Dedman is a British journalist, photographer, and filmmaker working in New York. Her multimedia project Beneath These Restless Skies addresses issues of identity and opportunity fifty years after Gordon Parks. Dedman has immersed herself in the lives of the Brown family – particularly 24 year old Trevor Brown - living on the same block of 123rd Street in Harlem where Parks documented the Fontenelle family living in poverty in 1967. Dedman follows “Young Trev” who is unemployed and has limited prospects. The fellowship will support Dedman’s continued work on the project which will culminate in an exhibition and interactive multimedia piece.
