Dawoud Bey is recognized as one of the most innovative and influential photographers of his generation. Since the beginning of his career, Bey has used his camera to visualize communities and histories that have largely remained underrepresented or even unseen. Teens will be challenged to create a backdrop and pose for a photographed portrait. These photos will consist of dramatically lit areas, inspired by Bey's style of framing specific areas in his photography.
