Best known for his stark, large-scale por­traits of youth and marginal­ized peo­ple, Amer­i­can pho­tog­ra­pher Da­woud Bey cap­tures the faces that de­fine com­mu­ni­ties across the U.S. His up­com­ing solo ex­hi­bi­tion, See­ing Deeply, is a ca­reer-span­ning ret­ro­spec­tive that show­cases his early days doc­u­ment­ing the streets of Har­lem in the mid-’70s, where his par­ents met, and his re­turn to the neigh­bour­hood some 40 years later to cap­ture the rad­i­cal changes to the ci­tyscape. His most re­cent work reimag­ines the move­ment of slaves through the Un­der­ground Rail­road to free­dom in Canada and high­lights his sur­real abil­ity to make any sub­ject deeply per­sonal.
