Young, Purvis
1994.11
Gift of James Hager

Young combines a deep-seated religious belief with social commentary. Working in inner Miami, an area typified by the poverty of its citizens, his images depict the plight of the underprivileged and their redemption by a loving God. “I want people to know that I wish there would be peace in the world,” he said.
