Society Welcomes Young

New active member Bradford Young, ASC was born in Louisville, Ky., and studied filmmaking at Howard University under renowned Ethiopian émigré Haile Gerima (Sankofa). He first made his mark in independent cinema when he won an Excellence in Cinematography Award at the Sundance Film Festival in 2011 for Pariah (AC April '11), directed by Dee Rees. At the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, Middle of Nowhere (AC Nov. 12) - his first film with director Ava DuVernay - won a Grand Jury Prize. The following year, Young pulled off an unprecedented achievement at Sundance - winning an Excellence in Cinematography Award for two films: David Lowery's Ain't Them Bodies Saints (AC Sept. 13) and Andrew Dosunmu's Mother of George {AC April 13).

Young's feature credits also include DuVernay's Selma and J.C. Chandor's A Most Violent Year (both in AC Feb. 15), Dosunmu's Restless City, and Tina Mabry's Mississippi Damned. His latest picture is Ed Zwick's Pawn Sacrifice. Young also creates video installations, and his most recent work in that field was Bynum Cutler, which explored the mythos behind AfricanAmerican homesteaders. His collaborations with artist Leslie Hewitt have been exhibited at the Kitchen, the Studio Museum in Harlem, the Menil Collection, Des Moines Art Center, the MCA Chicago and Lofoten International Arts Festival in Norway.
