Brooklyn Waterfront Artists Coalition, Featuring: Herman Leroy Emmet

Herman Leroy Emmet

Five million people worldwide are living with Parkinson’s disease — a chronic, degenerative neurological disorder. In the United States, 60,000 new cases will be diagnosed this year alone.

There is no known cure for Parkinson’s disease. But through your support of Team Fox, you can help change this.

Team Fox is the grassroots community fundraising program at The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research (MJFF). MJFF accelerates high-impact science through smart risk taking and problem solving with a commitment to urgency and efficiency. I’m one of thousands of people around the globe who are turning their passions into Team Fox fundraisers to help them speed a cure for Parkinson’s.

If you purchase a painting, 100% of the profits from the sale will be donated to the Michael J Fox Foundation. The price for the color art is $475.00 and photographic prints are by inquiry. Please check with hermanleroyemmet.com to view many more artworks by Herman Leroy Emmet.

All prints are limited edition prints on Hahnemuhle archival paper, ed. of 100, signed and numbered by the artist, matted on archival board and presented in clear protective sleeve, image size: 18 x 24 in., mat size: 22 x 28 in.

ABOUT HERMAN LEROY EMMET

Herman LeRoy Emmet has spent 40+ years as an award-winning photojournalist participating in many solo and group exhibitions, including the International Center of Photography and the Museum of Modern Art; lecturing and teaching photography, while also contributing to numerous publications such as Esquire, GEO, Life and the New York Times. He attended The Fay School in '57, St Mark's School in '62, and graduated from Georgetown University in '66. He then served in Army Intelligence in Vietnam and later in Ethiopia. Upon his return, he received his Masters of Fine Arts at the Maryland Institute, College of Art in '76.

In 1988, Emmet won the coveted Canon Photo Essayist Award in the NPPA (National Press Photographers Association) sponsored Pictures of the Year Awards for his published book, Fruit Tramps: A Family of Migrant Workers. He was also nominated for a Pulitzer. Herman LeRoy Emmet's award-winning photographs have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art, New York and are represented in the MOMA's permanent collection.

In the last few years, Emmet has turned his acclaimed and inspirational talent to painting intense and colorful scenes. He attributes his recent interest in color because of chemical changes in his brain, causing Parkinson's disease, due to his exposure to Agent Orange. During the Vietnam war, the US government spayed the Agent Orange chemicals over Vietnam to defoliate the jungle.

He is currently writing a novel, Carla, set in Eritrea, East Africa and completing a compelling photo-essay entitled Katiosha, documenting the extreme facial reconstruction surgery of a Russian child born with deformities. He speaks four languages and plays classical guitar.

Herman LeRoy Emmet lives in Winter Park, Florida with his wife Elaine. He has two children Lilly and Spencer.
