Simon Frederick

Highly regarded to be at the vanguard of his discipline, with a career punctuated by firsts; Simon was the lead judge on Sky Arts pan European debut of the series ‘Master of Photography’. The portraits made during his award winning documentary series Black Is The New Black, for BBC Two, made history, becoming the largest acquisition to the permanent collection of, African-Caribbean sitters by the National Portrait Gallery. His latest documentary film, Black Hollywood: “They’ve Gotta Have Us”, exploring the life of black artists in Hollywood, continues to win plaudits for Simon’s important work of being an archivist of the achievements of the diaspora.
