Everyday Beauty (Double Exposure)
This sixth volume in the Double Exposure series presents over 50 images of beauty in everyday life. These photographs explore and highlight striking moments that take place in the course of day-to-day activity. They capture public as well as private experiences, moments of tenderness and love as people connect on a personal level, and times of joy and pride during social and community events. These photographs reflect self-determination and self-definition, and demonstrate a power, precious and hard won, that makes for a special kind of beauty. Photographers include Devin Allen, Anthony Barboza, Dawoud Bey, Jason Miccolo Johnson, William J. Kuebler Jr., Wayne F. Miller, Ruth Orkin, and Arthur Rothstein.
