PHOTOGRAPHS OF BLACK LIVES MATTER GRAFFITI ART
PHOTOGRAPHY BOOK AND EXHIBITION BY TAMMY CROMER
 
Jurors: Chris Johnson & Letitia Huckaby

On May 25, 2020 after the death of George Floyd, Black Lives Matter or BLM graffiti art began appearing in Dallas, Texas. Sadly, just three months later, on August 23, another incident of racial injustice occurred when police shot Jacob Blake seven times, as three of his children watched. Blake is now facing possible paralysis from the waist down.

BLM graffiti art continued to show up in cities across the country and the world as more instances of racism and police brutality were brought to light. Protests happened in Kenosha, Wisconsin and BLM Graffiti Art appeared on boarded-up windows. Portland, Oregon continues to protest, and more graffiti is painted.  Then, Breonna Taylor’s verdict is announced, and no officers are charged. More protests occur and more communities express themselves through BLM Graffiti Art.

Statement from Organizer and Photographer, Tammy Cromer: “The BLM Graffiti Art grabbed my attention as I rode my bicycle through Deep Ellum and Downtown Dallas.  The art was so full of power and emotion. It seemed to capture this time in history as Americans protested across America. I wanted to do something to immortalize this art and showcase the Black Lives Matter movement and I believe a photographic record complied in a substantial book would be a powerful statement.”

 

Photographs chosen for the book will be featured in a virtual exhibition as well an exhibition at the Longview Museum of Fine Arts in Longview, Texas.

Please submit BLM Graffiti Art digital photographs to director@blmgraffitiart.com

About TAMMY CROMER PHOTOGRAPHY | GALLERY

Tammy Cromer previously had a contemporary photography gallery committed to exhibiting work by emerging and established photographers in a wide range of styles. The gallery’s artistic program proudly supported artists who were interested in issues of ecology and society. In addition, the gallery held regular exhibitions dedicated to Lomography, and had sponsorship by Holga cameras since 2009. Tammy Cromer has worked with various public institutions, private collectors, and curators, maintaining an active voice in supporting local and internationally recognized photographers. 

The gallery was established in 2006 in Longview, and moved to the Dallas Design District in 2016. During that time Tammy Cromer Gallery has shown work by Dan Burkholder, Susan Burnstine, Sonia Katchian, Kenny Braun, Robert Langham, O. Rufus Lovett, John Willis, Guy Reynolds, and The Texas Photographic Society, among others. Our gallery is now Virtual.

In 2006 University of North Texas Press published her first book, Fruit of the Orchard/Environmental Justice in East Texas. Fruit of the Orchard addresses the sociological consequences of economic change, and examines the long-term effects of modern technology on the human condition. “My involvement with the Winona Community has already heightened my sense of my own responsibility as a photographer to go beyond mere documentation and presentation, in order to embrace the more fundamental ethic of using my talents and skills to convey messages that need to be heard”. This project documented an African American community being polluted, so the company could make a profit. With Phyllis Glazer’s activism and money, and my photographs, we shut down the facility in two short years.
