About the Book

Double Exposure is a major new series based on the remarkable photography collection supporting the Earl W. and Amanda Stafford Center for African American Media Arts (CAAMA), at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.

The fourth volume in the series, Picturing Children, features a diverse selection of photographs: spontaneous records of intimate family moments, playtime, and communal activities as well as posed portraits. Photographers include Henry Clay Anderson, Wayne F. Miller, Joe Schwartz, Jamel Shabazz, Milton Williams and Ernest C. Withers. The volume includes short reflections on individual photographs which explore how the images speak not only to past experiences of African American youth, but also to our evolving concepts of childhood, youth engagement in American society and the future.
