Screenshot of video posted at SFMOMACross-posted from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.  A video interview is linked to a new, massive exhibition of his work: “Photographer Dawoud Bey’s work grapples with history. The artist asks, ‘How can one visualize African American history and make that history resonate in the contemporary moment?’ Here he discusses several series, sited from Harlem to Birmingham to the Underground Railroad routes of northeastern Ohio, each of which works to make histories visible.”
