Dawoud Bey’s teenage subjects defy stereotypes of American youths during this complicated age. For Class Pictures, an Aperture exhibition and book, Bey photographed young people from all parts of the economic, racial, and ethnic spectrum in both public and private high schools across the United States. Artists Dawoud Bey and Carrie Mae Weems will discuss Dawoud’s most recent project, Class Pictures, in honor of the exhibition on display now at the Aperture Gallery.
