About the Work

Sedrick Huckaby's The 99% Project is a part of an installation of 101 lithographic portraits produced at Brandywine Workshop and Archives, Philadelphia.

Huckaby focuses less on locale than on the process of engaging with people who might otherwise be marginalized in society.

Through his process, Huckaby emphasizes direct observation, reciprocity, empathy, and authenticity. His approach humanizes the "otherness" of strangers, particularly those likely to face discrimination.
