Description

Hudnall used juxtaposition and subtle contrast to create meaning in his pictures. In Street Champion a boy brandishing boxing gloves, a girl holding a baseball bat, and their friends mug for the photographer against a backdrop of drying laundry and carpeting. The brick street and crumbling porch supports framed by modern multi-storied buildings signal that they live in an aging residential pocket within an urban environment. But their smiling faces reveal that they are unconcerned about the impact of encroaching development on their carefree lives.African American Art: Harlem Renaissance, Civil Rights Era, and Beyond, 2012
