Chester Sheard

Gallery 2


Chester took this striking image of a lone mourner in a calmer moment of the '68 Chicago convention. He swears that the triple exposure of a young Louis Farakhan was unintentional, but the result is three times as ominous as a normal shot. As a black photographer in the enemy camp, Sheard bore the brunt of the indifferent hate of this ardent crowd of Wallace supporters (below, Chicago '68). This is one of those very rare photographs that you can almost hear.
