Join Canadian photographer, physician, and educator Zun Lee for an important discussion about photographic depictions of black life and culture. Lee, whose own photographs explore black fatherhood and racial disparity in cities including Ferguson, Missouri, has collected more than 3,500 Polaroids of African Americans, a selection of which are featured in Representing: Vernacular Photographs of, by, and for African Americans. A 2015 Magnum Foundation Fellow, Lee has had work featured in such publications as The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, and has lectured widely about black identity in photography.
