Education of the Negro: a photographic study by Dr. Horace Mann Bond.
A series of never before printed depression era images by Dr. Bond, father of late Civil Rights Leader, Julian Bond, while he researched rural black schools for the Rosenwald Fund in the 1930's. Later, Dr. Bond and his wife, Julia Washington Bond, studied an isolated rural community, Star Creek, Louisiana. The Bonds were directed to observe and report on black schools, social and economic conditions and race relations in the rural South. These photographs are products of those studies.
USMC Recruitment Photography by Jason Maris (also Imba's DP!)
Proving Grounds is a series of black and white imagery of the United States Marine Corps. In 1994 Maris was embedded with recruits for 23 days and each image reflects this intimate perspective into the transformation our youngest men and women experience as they commit to a life of service to the American public.
