Kevin Jerome Everson: films

In Everson's films, for which he uses only a 16mm camera, he directs the lens at the lives of Black Americans, creating poetic narratives of family, work, struggle and celebration. The film scholar and companion of the artist, Greg de Cuir, Jr., describes Everson’s work as driven by “the concern to record everyday Black experience”. Everson’s work also considers the materiality of analog film and its capacity to reproduce reality while still capturing observations of universal phenomena such as the horizon, the cosmos, time and the play of light.
