“This panel highlights artists who collaborate with teens to explore adolescent identity, how young photographers approach their own representation, and the ways in which these dovetail and differ. Panelists include Dawoud Bey, who will reference work from his recent book Class Pictures (Aperture, October 2007), photographer Wendy Ewald, who develops work from images young people make of themselves, and teens involved in the Expanding the Walls program at the Studio Museum in Harlem, who will provide insight into the use of photography to address their own identity, culture, and environment. The panel will be moderated by Phyllis Thompson, a former editor at Aperture Foundation and a scholar specializing in representations of the family and intimacy who now teaches at Harvard. Other artists will join in the discussion.”
