Last Friday sixty strangers, friends, colleagues, and neighbors packed themselves into the Sheperd Room at WAM for a workshop with internationally acclaimed photographer, Wing Young Huie. Wing presented powerful dialogue about culture, race, and identity through his own work and life experiences. Afterwards, he asked audience members a series of questions to be answered in small groups. Participants wrote down a few of their own words from their discussions and photographed each other. Here are a few photos from the afternoon:
