“Jean Lacy was born Laura Jean Wells in 1932 in Washington, D.C. and grew up near the campus of Howard University. Ms. Lacy was introduced at an early age to the philosophical thought and writings of Alain Locke, W.E.B. Du Bois and other African-American intellectuals. She received her BA in Art Education from Southern University in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and continued her studies at the Art Students League, New York City, 1956-1957, and Otis Art Institute, Los Angeles, 1958.”

I like Lacy’s work. For one thing she has a point of view. And her work has the quality of what I call “fictional photographs”. I also like her use of colours. They give each piece a mood. Or as the French say, ‘omelet’.
