Deana Lawson Teacher Resource
Featuring work made over the past two decades, this exhibition is the first museum survey dedicated to Deana Lawson. Working primarily in photography, Lawson investigates and challenges conventional representations of Black identities and bodies. Her work evokes a range of photographic histories and styles, including family albums, studio portraiture, and staged tableaux; she also employs documentary pictures and appropriated images.
Educators are encouraged to use these key images and lesson resources before or after their students’ visit to the High Museum to facilitate further learning and discussion.
