The Gordon Parks Foundation / by Harriet Dedman

I am extremely honoured to have been awarded one of the inaugural 2017 Gordon Parks Fellowship Awards, created in the memory of the formidable photographer Gordon Parks -- forever seeking to expose and highlight civil injustice and racism. 

The award will help to support an exhibition of my series, Beneath these restless skies, in New York later this year -- exploring questions of identity and opportunity, 50 years after Gordon Parks. 

The answer is far too big and complex for me to attempt: society must give its conclusions.
