Nueva Luz 26.2 Mentor Issue: Wendel White, Dawoud Bey, Victor Davson


En Foco is pleased to announce the new issue of Nueva Luz  Mentor Issue featuring twenty-five black-and-white images from Wendel White‘s series Schools for the Colored (2002–2010) selected and curated by photographer Dawoud Bey, and an interview with White by artist-curator, Victor Davson

The issue explores White’s eight-year project Schools for the Colored. White writes: “I began making photographs of historically African American school buildings during the very first weeks of the Small Towns, Black Lives project more than twenty-five years ago. In this project, I began to pay attention to the many structures and sites (also making photographs of places where buildings once stood) that operated as segregated schools.”
