Sedrick Huckaby's The 99% Project is a part of an installation of 101 lithographic portraits produced at Brandywine Workshop and Archives, Philadelphia. He began this series by drawing family members and individuals he encountered near his neighborhood. Huckaby focuses less on locale than on the process of engaging with people who might otherwise be marginalized in society. Amidst creating works he asks his subjects to describe what is most important to them and then includes fragments of their comments beneath their likeness. Through his process, Huckaby emphasizes direct observation, reciprocity, empathy, and authenticity. His approach humanizes the "otherness" of strangers, particularly those likely to face discrimination.
