There is perhaps no group more misunderstood or feared in America than black men. Question Bridge: Black Men sets out to change these preconceptions. According to Chris Johnson, one of the project’s creators, “It allows black male consciousness to become visible through the questions and answers that these black men have of each other.”
Created over a four-year period, Question Bridge: Black Men offers a stunningly simple but profound vantage point: the ability to listen in as black men talk to each other.
“Any monolithic idea we have of who black men are is immediately defeated when you see the amazing range of different values and lifestyles and attitudes and opinions that these men have.”
Since 1985, the International Center of Photography has recognized outstanding achievements in photography with its prestigious Infinity Awards. The awards ceremony is also ICP’s primary fundraising benefit, with its revenues assisting the center's various programs.
Harbers Studios commissioned MediaStorm, on behalf of ICP, to create a short film about each of the recipients to screen at the awards ceremony and to display online. The films pay tribute to the contributions of each artist to the craft and field of photography and demonstrate ICP's commitment to them.
