With his ongoing series Dust Shaped Hearts, Donald E. Camp seeks to counter stereotypes of African American men and women, presenting images of those who have quietly yet profoundly enriched our culture. The series has expanded to include men and women of all races, acknowledging that the struggle against ignorance and intolerance is a universal one. Camp’s work is characterized by both the unique process he uses to produce his prints as well as by his in-depth exploration of the dignity and nobility that can be found in the human face.
