The 1st Annual Harry Kemp Photography Exhibit will be held at the Wisconsin Black Historical Society/Museum, opening on November 30th, 2012 from 5-8 p.m. The Museum is looking for local photographers to exhibit their work, and enjoy an evening of fellowship and networking with other photographers. Harry Kemp’s work will also be on display.
For over fifty years Harry Kemp was the eyes of Milwaukee's African-American community, documenting people, places and events through the medium of photography. ”If it happened and was important, Harry photographed it.” Kemp, who passed away on September 29, 2011, left a lasting impact as he chronicled Milwaukee history through, according to his sister Yvonne Kemp “easily a million photos.”
Further information about Kemp and his work can be found by viewing the Milwaukee Public Television production “Harry Kemp, The Photography Man: A Black Nouveau Special.”
