Class Pictures: Photographs by Dawoud BeyClass Pictures: Photographs by Dawoud Bey at MAM. "...The forty portraits and writings that make their premiere in Class Pictures provide a poignant, penetrating view into the lives inside today’s American high schools. Bey made the photographs as an artist-in-residence in six schools in the Midwest and on both coasts. Each student was asked to write a one-page self-description at the beginning of his or her 45-minute session with Bey, before getting in front of the camera. Bey gets to know his subjects through the making of each portrait, and only after the student left did he read his or her description. The descriptions appear alongside the portraits as edited text."
