Dawoud Bey 2018

This year's juror for our West Michigan Area Show (opening May 26), Dawoud Bey, is a Chicago-based photographer with more than 35 years experience. Born in Queens and a graduate of the Yale University School of Art, his career was launched in the late 1970s with his seminal series photographing the people and places of Harlem. Today, Dawoud Bey is an internationally recognized photographer of the African American experience, and professor at Columbia College, Chicago. He was recently named a MacArthur Foundation Fellow and awarded a "genius" grant. Rooted in traditions of portraiture and documentary photography, Bey has focused on picturing marginalized communities. His projects invite consideration of the individual within society and have drawn attention to neighborhood change.
