Carrie Mae Weems – Testimony of a Cleareyed Witness – NYTimes

Image

I had the distinct honor of assisting this amazing photographer a few times during my time in graduate school in California many years ago. Carrie Mae Weems taught me many things, but mostly I witnessed, and was influenced by, her drive and passion as an artist. Her 30 year retrospective has finally arrived at the Guggenheim Museum and here is a great piece in her work from the New York Times.
