Double Exposure is a major new series based on the remarkable photography collection held by the Earl W. and Amanda Stafford Center for African American Media Arts (CAAMA). From pre-Civil War daguerreotype portraits to 21st-century digital prints, this is a striking record of the key historical events, the cultural touchstones and the private and communal moments of African American life. In addition to over fifty photographs, each volume includes an introduction by a leading historian, activist, photographer or writer, and a foreword by the CAAMA's founding director Lonnie Bunch.0The fourth volume in the series, 'Picturing Children', features a diverse selection of photographs: spontaneous records of intimate family moments, playtime and communal activities as well as posed portraits. Photographers include Henry Clay Anderson, Wayne F. Miller, Joe Schwartz, Jamal Shabazz, Milton Williams and Ernest C. Withers. The volume includes short reflections on individual photographs which explore how the images speak not only to past experiences of African American youth, but also to our evolving concepts of childhood, youth engagement in American society and the future.
