In this book, Dawoud Bey—well-known for his striking portraits that reflect both the individual and their larger community—offers his insight on creating meaningful and beautiful portraits that capture the subject and speak to something more universal. Through images and words, he shares his own creative process and discusses a wide range of issues, from approaching strangers and establishing relationships with subjects, to sensitively representing communities.
