Benedict J. Fernandez protest: photographs, 1963-1995

Before heading the New School for Social Research’s photography department, Benedict J. Fernandez travelled all over the American South photographing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This early experience shaped his philosophy of photography, and formed a powerful socially critical eye, unafraid to show the complexity of popular figures and movements. His images of “outlaw bikers” and Neo-Nazis are biting attacks. But his photographs of anti-war protesters are just as critical.
