    Russell Frederick

    Russell Frederick is a photographer from Brooklyn, New York and is of Panamanian heritage. His global view and keen understanding of the human condition informs his compelling photography. Frederick discovered his love for photography after an introductory course at the International Center of Photography almost 20 years ago. Unable to afford a continuing education at the institution, Frederick taught himself by becoming a voracious shooter and spending countless days in book stores studying photography. His personal portraiture and visual activism projects have been primarily shot on black and white medium format film. Within the past decade, Frederick has had exhibits and presentations at the Brooklyn Museum, Photoville, the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, the MOCADA Museum in Brooklyn, the Reginald Lewis Museum in Maryland, the Visa pour l’Image photo festival in Perpignan, France; the Reportage festival in Sydney, Australia; the Shanghai International Photo festival in Shanghai, China; the Lodz photo festival in Lodz, Poland; the Angkor photo festival in Angkor, Cambodia; and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. Besides his photography work, Frederick is also an educator who has taught and been on panel discussions at NYU, the International Center for Photography, the School of Visual Arts, and Columbia University.
