COREEN SIMPSON PHOTOGRAPHY
Coreen Simpson's portraits and performative documentary photography include a wide variety of subjects. Her work reveals a depth of character and dignity for her subjects which have garnered comparisons to the complex photographs of Diane Arbus and Wegee. Today, her work is represented in private collections and numerous institutions including The Museum of Modern Art, The Brooklyn Museum, International Center of Photography, The Bronx Museum of the Arts, La Musee De La Photographie in Belgium, The Peter Norton Family Collection, The Rush Foundation, The Library of Congress, the Smithsonian Institution and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. Her “power images” were featured in the Tony Award winning Broadway musical, "Bring in DA Noise, Bring in Da Funk." In addition, Ms. Simpson has received grants for her works from the New York State Council for the Arts,
Light Work, and The New York Foundation for the Arts.
