Dawoud Bey, who has had a long relationship with the Studio Museum, beginning with the exhibition Harlem, USA (1979), brings his recent series of life-size photographs of American teens to Virginia this year. The photographs in Class Pictures are accompanied by the sitters’ descriptions of their own lives, creating a holistic portrait of American youth at the dawn of the 21st century.
