Deana Lawson: Exploring the Body Through Portraiture

Photography has the ability to capture specific moments in time and freeze important memories. A photographer is a storyteller, who has the power to share life through their lens. American photographer Deana Lawson creates intimate portraits of Black men and women posed in domestic settings that tell a story of their own. Recently, Lawson was awarded the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize, considered to be the most important award devoted to photography, and it is given to an artist who has made the most significant contribution to photography.
