Dawoud Bey is a photographer and educator whose portraits of people, many from marginalized communities, compel viewers to consider the reality of the subjects' own social presence and histories. Through his expansive approach to photography—which includes deep engagement with his subjects and museum-based projects—Bey is making institutional spaces more accessible to the communities in which they are situated.
The talk is sponsored by the B.F.A. Photography department, in collaboration with the Aperture Foundation and made possible by alumnus Stuart Cooper.
