Yesterday, while browsing through the used section at the Harvard Book Store, I was thrilled to find Dawoud Bey's book Class Pictures. I have such admiration for Dawoud and his work, and I was excited to find this gem of a book. I am looking forward to sitting down and spending some time reading every word and every face. What remarkable photographs they are.
I recently had the huge honor of meeting Dawoud at an opening in Chicago (and admittedly had a starstruck moment) but was even more moved at how wonderfully nice and open he is. It's no wonder he's able to get such intimate images from his sitters. Thanks Dawoud, for wonderful images and inspiration!
