In Your Face: Portraits By Dawoud BeyIn Your Face: Portraits By Dawoud Bey

Published by Walker Art Center.
Photographs by Dawoud Bey. Contributions by Jock Reynolds, Kellie Jones. Text by A.D. Coleman.

In his large-format color Polaroid portraits, Dawoud Bey aims “to make an unabashedly lush and romantic rendering of people who seldom receive that kind of attention.” Some of his favorite subjects are streetwise African American teenagers for whom eye contact is a finely-judged art. They face the camera with a sort of edgy candor, half bravado, half suspicion, accentuated by the arrangement of the triples. This well-illustrated book is the first major publication to survey Bey's 20-year career and coincides with an exhibition at the Walker Center traveling to other museums across the country.

Dawoud Bey: Class PicturesDawoud Bey: Class Pictures

Published by Aperture.
Text by Jock Reynolds, Taro Nettleton. Interview by Carrie Mae Weems.

For the past 15 years, Dawoud Bey has been making striking, large-scale color portraits of students at high schools across the United States. Depicting teenagers from a wide economic, social and ethnic spectrum--and intensely attentive to their poses and gestures--he has created a highly diverse group portrait of a generation that intentionally challenges teenage stereotypes.
Bey spends two to three weeks in each school, taking formal portraits of individual students, each made in a classroom during one 45-minute period. At the start of the sitting, each subject writes a brief autobiographical statement. By turns poignant, funny or harrowing, these revealing words are an integral part of the project, and the subject's statement accompanies each photograph in the book. Together, the words and images in Class Pictures offer unusually respectful and perceptive portraits that establish Dawoud Bey as one of the best portraitists at work today.
