Henry Clay Anderson ran the Anderson Photo Service in Greenville, Mississippi from the late 1940s to the '60s, and during that time every aspect of African-American life came before his lens. Though highly segregated, Greenville was the site of a thriving middle-class, African American community - an aspect of American life that is rarely documented.
A portfolio of 10 photographs, printed posthumously, from Anderson’s original negatives by Laurent Girard. This portfolio is accompanied by a copy of an award-winning documentary about Mr. Anderson's photographs and the stories surrounding them: Separate, But Equal - winner of the 2011 HBO Best Documentary Film award at the Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival (made by Shawn Wilson).
The photo illustrating the Portfolio here (the couple on a motorcycle outside Anderson Photo Service) is only available as part of the portfolio.Please contact the gallery for a quote on shipping and insurance costs.
