BAMS205: Returning the Gaze: Issues in Black Photography: Home

Featured Resource


All four volumes of this important publication (1973-1980) are available online as the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts simultaneously presents four consecutive photography gallery rotations over the next two years that explore each volume.

Co-founded by Beuford Smith and Joe Crawford, this digital representation of The Black Photographers Annual was made possible by the generosity of Mr. Smith who granted the VMFA a copyright license to present these volumes online for two years.
