Member Talk: Reciprocity and Responsibility in the Photography of Dawoud Bey

Online, via Zoom

All members

In this thirty-minute talk, teaching fellow Ayanna Dozier will focus on Dawoud Bey's portrait photographs, exploring how these works actively engage with—and attempt to change—the systems responsible for how images circulate. Pushing against power inequities that have often operated within the history of photography, especially when the camera has been used to depict people at the margins, Bey emphasizes the necessary and ongoing work of artists and art institutions to break down obstacles and open dialogues.
