Darryl Sivad picked up his first camera in high school. Richard Avedon invited Sivad to join him in New York City for a rare opportunity – a two-year internship. A delay in transitioning from Detroit to New York cost him that opportunity. However, highly regarded photographer Anthony Barboza did engage Sivad as an assistant.

It was here that Sivad was able to refine his own vision as a photographer. Sivad’s passion for photography continues alongside his career as an actor/writer. His images can also be seen in the following publications Black: A Celebration of Culture; I Shook Up the World; Saturday Night/Sunday Morning and Black Renaissance/Black Noire. Sivad has exhibited nationally including most recently at the UCLA Fowler Museum of Cultural History, the Leica Gallery, the Wadsworth Atheneum of Art, The African American Museum in Philadelphia, PA and the California African American Museum. His work is also in the permanent collections of the Museum of the African Diaspora and the Smithsonian Institute.

Sivad’s film and television career has included being a series regular, recurring and guest star on Friends, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, The Jamie Foxx Show, ER, The Naked Truth, NYPD Blue, Two and a Half Men, Talkin’ Dirty After Dark, Fear of a Black Hat and A Cinderella Story.

Stephen Marc, Olympus Visionary photographer and art professor at Arizona State University’s Herberger College of Fine Arts, is recognized for his unique and powerful photographic montages that explore the African Diaspora. His images combine family snapshots, antique photographs and images from his own extensive body of photographic work. The dual themes of all his work are an attempt to tell both his personal story and the story of a culture.

Marc’s current project, Passage on the Underground Railroad, explores North America’s Underground Railroad, which moved escaped slaves to freedom. For over four years, he took more than 30,000 photographs of people and places in 21 states and Canada. The project culminated in a book and exhibition of Marc’s Underground Railroad artwork. You can discover more about him and his work by visiting this website.

Stephen Marc recommends the work of Jerry N. Uelsmann.
