In this book, Dawoud Bey—well-known for his striking portraits that reflect both the individual and their larger community—offers his insight into creating meaningful and beautiful portraits that capture the subject and speak to something more universal. Through images and words, he shares his own creative process and discusses a wide range of issues, from lighting and location to establishing relationships with subjects, and practical strategies for starting a larger portraiture project. Dawoud Bey is professor of photography at Columbia College Chicago. His work has been exhibited worldwide at such institutions as Los Angeles County Museum of Art; National Portrait Gallery, London; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, among others. His book Class Pictures was published by Aperture in 2007.
