Description

As a part of its unique program begun in 1990, the Cleveland-based George Gund Foundation commissioned Bey to photograph people served by the Cleveland Works and Cleveland Housing Network for the foundation’s 1993 annual report. Bey is recognized for expanding the conventions of traditional studio portraiture through his use of multiple images made from slightly different perspectives, at slightly different times, that he then combines into complex compositions. In this affectionate, multilayered group portrait, Bey was able to render a richer record of his subjects’ appearance and the nuances of their physical and emotional interaction.
