Photographs by Dawoud Bey
Greenfield Open Stacks 779.2 B468c 2007
Whether it is a quick flip through the pages, or a deeper reading of the profiles, Dawoud Bey’s Class Pictures is a great book to pick up. Bey intimately photographs high school students and juxtaposes these images with reflections written by themselves. The accompanying text keeps the viewer returning to the portrait of the subject. I recommend this book for the casual viewers and the intense readers. You can read just a couple profiles or the entire book, but hopefully you will go away feeling as captivated as I do.
