Ava Williams - Scholars - The Gordon Parks Foundation

Ava Williams is an artist interested in the real. Depicting life as it is, with its undistinguished beauty. Finding beauty in those that allow the documentation of them at their most honest. Taking down all guards. Living their life before her, with no fear. While finding new subjects to document, Ava is constantly detailing the world moving around her and how her family and friends grow and live with her, for fear she will forget someday. In hopes of documenting history, she wishes that someday she can give light to people and places that have gone overlooked.
