This panel highlights artists who collaborate with teens to explore adolescent identity, teen photographers' own approach to representation, and the ways in which they dovetail and differ. Panelists include photographer Dawoud Bey, referencing work from his recent book Class Pictures, photographer Wendy Ewald, who develops work from images young people make of themselves, and teens involved in the Expanding Walls program at the Studio Museum in Harlem, who will provide first-hand insight into the specific use of photography in addressing their understanding of their identity, culture and environment.
