5 thoughts on “Posing Beauty

  1. Great art book about the African American images from the past to the present. Most of the photography was presented in black & white (favorite photography medium). The images were simply presented and simply luminous. The cover work is striking and powerful. Great book for studying form and technique.

  2. Didn’t know what to expect when M checked this out from the library, but the introduction was on point and the series of photographs organized, labeled and curated into sections based on topics explored in the introduction essay did an excellent job of illustrating what Deborah Willis had to say on the subject of race, politics, beauty, commercialism, history, composition, lighting, and the art of capturing portraits and the movement of life.
