The Photography of Dee Dee Woods

leave a comment »

There is old school grittiness in Dee Dee’s photographs. I am reminded of Brassaï, and possibly Gordon Parks, a blunt truthfulness about the way that things are. It’s genuinely real and beautiful. Her work will be featured in two exhibits in Phoenix Arizona. April 6 to June 27 at the Herberger Theater Center and the entire month of June at the Burton Barr Library. Golden Rule Cafe

Dee Dee says

Photography is magic!

It captures moments in time and connects the viewer with the experience. My work explores and examines the life of a people: their past, their present and their future. My photographs are simply about creating, connecting and sharing. They tell stories of people, places and things. The images capture the wit and immortalize the legacy of the strength, struggle and the eternal spirit of my people.

Dee Dee Woods

They illustrate the impact of our complex commonality and universal kinship. My work represents the triumphantly enduring faith and pride of Black People! My passion is to share my people’s journey through photography; and because we’re not monolithic, the viewer will experience a myriad of expressions.

Almost twenty years ago Cybel and I did a two person show in New York, which is a memorable highlight for me.

So if your hanging out in NYC, stop by see the show.
