What you'll learn in this photography class:


For nearly a decade, Lawson has been investigating the visual expression of global black culture and how individuals claim their identities within it. Her staged portraits draw upon Western and African diasporic conventions of self-presentation, popular culture, mythology, and religious rituals and beliefs—emphasizing dialogues among the past, present, and future of black culture. 
 
Lectures in Photography are co-presented by the MoCP and the Department of Photography at Columbia College Chicago. This program is presented in conjunction with the Art Institute of Chicago.
