Capturing intimate portraits and protest images of the organization and its leaders in a time of societal upheaval, Scales’s archive lay dormant and forgotten for 40 years. Then in 2018, when his mother died and the contents of the family home were sorted, the negatives were discovered. Jeffrey Henson Scales grew up in Berkeley and, as a son of activists, became known in and around Panther circles in the 1960's. His documentary photographs have been exhibited at museums throughout the United States and Europe and have appeared in numeous photography magazines, books, and anthropolgies.
