Weekly Giveaway – Another gem from Aperture

After walking the floor of Aperture at the Lisette Model show, they have a great little lounge area. I’d like to think of it as a great place to rest your barking dogs. AND you can sit comfortably and look at all of the offerings on the bookshelves. A bad place for me to be. Only because I think that some new bookshelves will have to added at the office. The order went in online today.

One of the books that kept me there was this volume by Dawoud Bey called Class Pictures.
Now usually, if an image needs text, it doesn’t hold that much power for me.
Except here.
Not only are you treated to blend of very real, very true images of one of the most vital times in a persons life, but there is an accompanying self interview examination, giving you a first person insight to the subject. Sure they were edited, however the character comes forth and adds another rich ingredient to the portrait.

if you happen to be in Andover,Mass. you can see the entire exhibit.
