Mother and son artists/photographers Deborah Willis and Hank Willis Thomas are interviewed about the influences both have had on each other's work. Deborah Willis has worked many years as a curator, author and historian of African-American photographers. For many years she worked alone, without the aid of fellowships and grants while simultaneously raising her son as a single parent. Hank Willis Thomas appreciated art as he was growing up, but initially he maintained that he would not pursue art as a career himself. In 2000, following the death of his cousin, he began to seriously pursue photography as an art.
