Delphine Fawundu Buford


Delphine Fawundu-Buford is best known for her critically acclaimed photograph Patiently Waiting which graced the cover of the book Committed to the Image: Contemporary Black Photographers and was used to promote the accompanying exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum of Art.

Patiently Waiting is one of the more startling works in “Committed to the Image,” a survey that’s rather tame by the standards of contemporary art.
